You are almost starting a holy war  :)

I believe hotmail used to be hosted on FreeBSD until it was bought out by
MS, that should be a decent volume indicator.

I run a very small email list server and it works fine on a p200.  I did see
a noticable jump in speed when I switched the mail service from sendmail to
qmail, so it is also dependant on what you will run.
