Hello to all.

I'm new to the list so if I have missed discussions on this subject I
apologize. I have looked through the archives and have found very little
except a few comments on the beta versions of mail and news.

We're about ready to start up a new ISP using NT Server and were
considering MCIS as our software package. MS is currently pricing the
entire suite(mail, news, chat, replication/personalization, membership) at
$3,995 and includes 2000 CAL's for mail and membership if purchased before
June 30. Not cheap, but compared to what I have found for similar
individual products it doesn't seem out of line - if it works.

My question for the group concerns the "if it works" part. Is anyone using
MCIS ( or heard any reports from others) since 1.0 was released?

Any comments concerning this product would be greatly appreciated.
