We can take this information back to sysadmin and decide if the lower
spec. is reasonable.

Yes to debian.  Yes to qmail or postfix.  (I favour postfix only
because I've hacked the code a little and because I hate the way qmail
does aliases.)  And yes to spamassassin and things like SPF which is

other updates once the box is dedicated.
