Yes, but read what I said, in duplicate circumstances avg was 4 against
  10 :)    the 1-2 is without it.

looked at it a few years back, decided no and dont intend to, also had 
enuf of the wietse patsies trying to thrash it down everybodys throats on
other lists, its akin to spamming :)

especially those that argue vigorously its better than sendmail, when they 
have never used sendmail

At least I benchtext MTA's before discounting them, and I found when 
configured right sendmail even beats qmail at speed for delivery and both
leave postfix in their wake, but now we are way off topic :)
