[Emerald] Off-Topic: Mail Servers

I have just about run out of patience with my current NT-based SMTP/POP3
server, SLMail from Seattle Labs. While it was fine when we were a startup,
it is becoming slower and more unresponsive as we grow (i.e. while at Comdex
last week, the POP3 service had to be restarted three times).

Soon, I will be changing mail server software. I don't know which package
yet, but it will either be a package for Linux, FreeBSD or NT. I am not
necessarily looking for Emerald integration. I am looking for stability. I
am also looking for unlimited POP3 mailboxes, not the $2 per box pricing
scheme used by Sendmail NT.

What are you using for a POP3/IMAP/SMTP server? Do you recommend it?
