I was able to complete the whole process using webmail, so I can't help
you with kmail. However the order process for the server is what they call
a "Hands-Off" order. I tried unsuccessfully to upgrade the memory from
512MB to 1 GB after I placed the order. That was the only drawback I
experienced. So make sure you have all the options you want ticked off
before proceeding with the purchase.
As for the server I am very happy with it. Running Xen, so needed an AMD
or official Intel processor. Xen does not support the VIA chips on
mini-ITX or Intel clones. So for 150 I get a AMD Opteron dual core
Massive saving running Linux versus Windows and all drivers were
recognized straight away with Ubuntu Server 7.10.
