    My point poundsmack is that they suck you in with, "ITS FREE' and then they get bought by a new parent company and new suddenly version 7 come out and its not free anymore, its 99 bucks per user. So I will not invest time and effort to migrate me entire list of user and all the spam filters to any system that not complete open source so that I know it'll never go payware.

    Incidentally this product looks like it has gone open source now so I will change my vote.

    Wow, amazingly full featured for a free mail server. A good alternative to what I'm using.

    ok the "it's not open source, I won't touch it" movement needs to fade away. rating it a 1 for you not liking it's licence is also a little rediculous. so here is a rating based on the product.

    Version 5 is going to be great. the beta is fast and the new features are a welcome upgrade. I am really looking forward to a stable 5.0 release. easily the rival (if not better) than phlymail ( ) and Mdaemon ( )

    Now that its closed source, I will not touch it. Too easy for them to say, "New version 6, now Shareware. Get yours for only 69.95 per user!!"
