I would have loved you to have had a chance to try Postfix as well so
there was a complete MS supported MTA comparison (I'm not suggesting you
should break what you have just to complete the report ;-) ). I too have
never used zMailer preferring Postfix (As I'm stupid and find it much
easier to setup :-) ) but I'm always interested and on the lookout for
different ideas and options.
