We are using Metainfo also. While it's not a stellar product, I think it
runs ok. I haven't had many problems with the web interface. I did have
the problem where DNS would quit responding to requests after getting an
error that reported (no error), love those meaningful error codes. I have
been running a 2nd caching server from day one. Over the course of a week
we worked through the problem with tech support. The problem was related
to improper setup on some domains. I guess the error was recursive and
would gradually bring the server to it's knees over a day or so.

I also use Sendmail from Metainfo but am looking to find something that is
easier to admin. I'm leaning towards NTmail from what I've heard here and
seen of the products.
