Have to agree with you there....seems we both had to two totally =
responses, we purchased way back when they sold the =
users and we really didn't need or even use the support, however, the =
deal of bailing out on the unlimited user people with an upgrade left a
sour taste in my mouth, especially since 2.0 had a serious security hole =
it. So I bailed out on totally and all the new setups I do =
any consulting will be using NTMail. Post.Office is actually a good
product, especially for smaller scale operations. It gets to be costly =
you get up there in the users. I am also looking forward to using a
radiusNT database to authenticate all my users in NTMail.
