comment Accessing files of another operating system
Why can't you? You get an error? You are new to Ubuntu and do not get how? ... Ubuntu by default will mount Windows disks by itself and you do not need to do anything. All you need to do is click on the device icon and it'll mount.

"Is this a permissions issue?" depends: use ls -l on the directory and the files inside the directory from /media/ and deeper. If any are not owned by your user ... it probably is.

... and I would advice to look into WHY it fills up. 20Gb for root is more than enough for a desktop.

comment How to mount a partition for Home?
"mainly so I wont need to back up next time I upgrade Ubuntu" you ALWAYS need to backup before upgrading. A separate /home does not negate that.

comment How to set up ubuntu server so it uses outside mail server
They will tell you how... If it is "postmark"... they use an API you can feed arguments and attachments. Should be the normal method but this will depend on who that 3rd party is and if they accept this method.
