I plan for this to be a lightweight Citadel OR SOGo server for my 
personal PIM information. So I will basically be the only client.

The important thing is that I want the physical server to be as small as 
possible, that is why I found the VIA ARTiGO A1100, does AMD offer 
anything similar to that tiny form factor?
