How are you finding hMailServer so far?

I ran it for years, and was quite happy with it.

Stoic Joker,
Not meaning to pry, and if the answer isn't private information, if you were to go to Exchange with your current email loads, how much storage would you plan to have available?

...that distinction will have a huge effect on the log size. This is one of a multitude of reasons why Exchange tends to require a lot of system resources.

Honestly, the install footprint for the Exchange software would probably take up more space on the hard drive then my requirements for a mail store would. But as Shades eluded to above Exchange is a memory hungry beast that is just simply overkill for what I'm doing here. And the constant transaction log creation and processing is more wear on the drives that I just don't want to have to allow for.

Sure, I could setup the thing up and run it in my sleep ... But it's simply not cost effective for me to do so.

I am indeed quite impressed with it. It has done everything I have asked of it and more ... And it has done so without - at any point - pissing me off, or requiring me to delve into the bowels of its documentation (those two points are associated..).

I currently use this Email Server at my home-based business for over 10 years now. It has never given any issues or problems.
