I am using an AlphaStation 200 (with only 32M of RAM, even :-) for
several things:

	- DNS server
	- NFS server (it has a Promise IDE controller on it with a
	  13G UDMA disk)
	- POP server (qpopper package)
	- SMTP server (postfix in base distribution)
	- WWW server (apache package)
	- Database server (mysql package)

...with the apache, php3, and mysql packages, along with another
piece of software (which I haven't done a package for yet), I have
a nice little webcalendar :-)

I download all my email to my laptop using fetchmail, and read it there
with mutt.

Anyway, I did pretty much everything from pkgsrc ... all works nicely.
