At home I have a Compaq DL360 with SBS2003 (thanks AOS) running Exchange 2003. I have a Compaq 1850R with Windows 2003 (thanks MS) with BES 4.
Some of the perks of being a manager at a large computer store are free goodies from vendors... I have an entire closet dedicated to computer apparel. The servers came from a a repo/auction house and from ebay, all dirt cheap. Replacement/spare drives came from my friends at AOS (don't ask).
I also have dual internet feeds at home, all running through a symantec router... nothing fancy, but somewhat reliable in the boonies where I live, 1 connection to cable company, 1 connection to phone company.
Nothing at my house is production, all testing and stuff.

I suppose your own BES server would be ideal. But I don't care to maintain expensive hardware, nor purchase the necessary server licences, UPS hardware, etc.
