Standard server purposes ...

* E-Mail
* DNS / Active Directory / Group Policy
* Website Hosting
* Applications (ERP, databases, ASP/.NET)
* File storage
* Print services
* Host deployment and update

I used to run my own domain from home on Win Server 2003. It was fine, but the only problem I ran into was e-mail bouncing back to the sender if my mail server was down due to a ISP issue.

Mostly it is just overkill and will cause you wasted time if you don't know what you are doing.

Servers can be quite useful for file sharing, storing backups and streaming music and video around the house.
