Mail server on 3view box?

For a variety of reasons, my current free, flexible and customisable mail server for my domains is possibly going to the great WEEE recycling place in the sky in the near future. It occurs to me that whilst I've got a fully fledged Linux box running 24/7 at home, it might make some sense to get a Postfix or similar installation on there to handle it instead.
