Migration from Apple Server Software

The following steps will be taken to migrate from Apple Server software.  Since Apple no longer supports or provides software that will run on macOS Mojave 10.14 software must be added manually to provide the same services.

Project Status:

[√ ] 1. Old Server: Move all data off internal hard drives to external hard drives, reworked all backup strategies.    Completed 11/29/2018, 

[√ ] 2. New Server: Install dongles to connect external hard drives, monitor and USB A devices.

[ √] 3. Create New Linux Mail Server.
