Hello,

About myself: I just graduated from college with MIS/Finance degree. Im not fully experienced in handling such a project described below, but I do feel that it is a great opportunity to gain some experience in the industry.

My friend is starting up his own business, and Im gonna help him set up all the networking, web servers, etc... I have a couple of questions I was wondering if you could help me out with before I get started.

- Do you think it would be better to set up a personal web server at the office, or to just use a web hosting company like "wazoo.com" to set up a website & email? I would like to try to set up a personal web server because it seems more challenging. I know I will have more control over the server & faster speeds.

- If I go with setting up a personal web server, I'll probably run Win 2000 server w/ Apache. Would I need two servers? One to run the web server (email & website) & one to run network drives for files (xls, docs, etc...)? Or is just one server sufficient to run both aspects of the two server? Because I was talking to a friend and he told two servers is the way to go, but I am also on a budget.

- Last question. After the website is running lets say at 'www.domain.com'. To set up the email accounts on the client computers would all I have to do is set up POP3 & SMTP on let's say Outlook for all the clients? Or do I need special software on the Server to allow me to do this?

Thank you for your help I really appreciate it,
