hehe Well.. Here's my plan. I'm going to move to Exchange 2003 and take
advantage of all the new features with regards to spam fighting and
whatnot. Then I may or may not add a 3rd party app from Sunbelt Software
called Messaging Ninja. It is supposed to be pretty good.

But I've still got to plan the whole thing and come up with a proposal
for the owner.

The one issue about MailScanner that I have is that there is not a
plugin for Outlook that allows my users to easily manage their own
white/black lists.

MailScanner is too separated from Exchange.

I agree with you but frankly I'm not the type of person that enjoys
sitting for hours researching a problem and tweaking files. Where I *am*
able to do that (and enjoy it almost all of the time) is one the web.
Building web apps is what I enjoy. It's easy to work 10-12 hour days
when I'm building something.

But overall I don't dislike MailScanner or dislike linux at all. (Well,
maybe I hate package dependancies...)
