Hosting services on Alpine
Alpine is well suited for hosting email-, web- or other network-related services.
Your biggest task is to figure out what you want your system to do.
First you need to get alpine up and running.
Follow the Installation instructions on how to get your Alpine booted.
If nothing else is mentioned in the below instructions, you should use the latest stable release:
VServer or not
VServer itself has nothing to do with the various services.
But if you intend to run multiple services on same box (e.g. mail and webhosting) it might be wise to run the various services in separate vserver-guests.

We split the 'Mail' section into various tasks.
One task is to gather and process mail. Some other task would be to prevent spam and virus etc.
Finally we need to make sure the user can fetch/read his mail.
