Is it possible to create a local email server in conjunction with a VoIP system?
Is it possible to run a mail server, and also set up a VoIP system on the same server/machine?
In my exact situation, I want to transition my fellows off of Gmail services and run everything locally. Also need to setup a VoIP system, and so I was curious if both can occur on the same server or they each need a dedicated machine.
Are there any recommended resources/advice?
Also any recommendations for a server(s) for a job of this caliber?

I don't have a lot of expertise in this area, but yes you should be able to run both a VoIP call server and email server on the same physical computer. You should be looking for a hardware system with a powerful (greater than 8 cores) CPU and lots of memory. Then you want to run a virtualization operating environment like VMware. The mail server and call server will each run on their own VM.
However......most services like these are moving to a cloud based model. Companies like Avaya offer cloud based call servers. Amazon has cloud based email services that run on AWS.
