    a very good and solid product, downloading 10 as we speak. Also anyone know a good free alternative?

    MDaemon is very utilitarian and just works. We beat it silly at a previous job and it worked great. A good exchange substitute.

    BoNeLeSS, considering this is a WINDOWS only mail server, why bother swinging around your list of unix-only mail servers? So tired of the linux crowd touting their goods that "if only the rest of us had their great knowledge we could use too". Geeze.

    Very nice and powerful software at a fraction of the cost of Exchange, Domino or Groupwise. Of course you have open source alternatives (postifx, dovecot, cyrus, clamAV, spamassin, squirrelmai) but only the setup requires some level of experitse with these.
    If you cant afford the three kings of groupware and you dont have the skills to setup a pure OSS mail system, then MDaemon may be the best bet.

    Very good Exchange alternative, with less cost outlay. Ad on spam filter & AV works great too.
