As I said, I have had no problems and I have several clients who use the
product on large intranets instead of exchange server and it works VERY

What version did you have problems with.

Weren't you telling us all how good the product was not so long ago?

Anti-Spam measures are now in place.

The only corruption problem I could thing of would be the general problem
that seems to occur on NTFS drives when they get very fragmented. I've seen
it happen with several products including MS Proxy Server.

At least with PO you don't have to pay for the number of domains in use
like in NTmail (or maybe I can't understand their price list???)
