As a side note, I'd like to take this opportunity to remind people that.

1. Sendmail is FREE (No need to spend $$$$$$ on Post Office or NTmail)
2. inn-1.5 is FREE (No need to spend $$$$$ on MS-News or NS-News)
3. Linux is FREE and it runs on about 1/5 of the hardware NT does.

I know 90% of you on the list are NT people, but we have been running
Linux News, Web and Mail servers for the past 2 years with much success.
Why not take those thousands of dollars in licensing fees and use
something that is stable, proven and reliable?

We're intergrating Emerald with Linux at an alarming rate here, and thanks
to Dale and I cracking heads on a couple of phone calls, have the export /
automatic account creation / synchornization setup and working. It's
really rather slick.

Just an FYI.. I really do find it amusing that people spend as much as
they do on NT solutions. :)
