*snip* what are you a one man NOC ? surely you can delegate, but I 
know if somthing f2#$#s up it still comes back down to me, thats why 
competant engineers by my side are a must ;)

We are shortly about to remove qmail from equation on all our virtual 
domain boxes by using sendmail and cyrus, I'm sick to death of spending 2 days 
patching the usless peice of crap every time we want some other feature 
thats defaultly in sendmail and has been in it for like 8 years or more.

bernstein is right about one thing tho, qmail is secure, afterall how can 
you exploit somthing that does nothing :D
