I had HORRIBLE experiences with SLMail. It was unable to handle a simple
"distribution" list, a hand-made mailing list with about 80 forwarding
addresses associated with it, with moderate traffic of 100 messages per
forwarding address per day. It would GPF, it would crash the machine with
a BSoD, it was thoroughly unstable, and had memory gushers. This was the
freeware trial version they posted. I dumped it in favor of NTMail.

You get what you pay for.
