Look - one of my favourite quotes was out of Dirty Harry "Yeah, well - 
opinions are like assholes - everybody's got one".  You don't have to 
agree with mine, but I don't have to agree with yours either.  Working 
through problems as opposed to paying somebody else is not wasting time.

£90?  Ah - for a business this isn't a big deal I suppose.  If it were 
US$50 it'd be a no-brainer.  I agree with devs needing to get paid.  I 
sometimes wonder if competition to drive pricing down is good or not 
too.  But I'm a sysadmin, not an economist.  All I can say is that it is 
too rich for me and in my case instead of getting half of something, the 
devs will get all of nothing.  If I'm one man that doesn't mater, does it?

I think I'll have to take the plunge and switch to Postfix.  I haven't 
gotten enthusiastic about it yet.  Might be time to teach an old dog new 

Anyway - my actual question - * has anyone gotten smf-sav or another 
alternative solution running on a CentOS5 system?  If so, I'd love to 
hear from you.  You never know, I might even pay you for it :)

Cheers all.
