You are almost starting a holy war :) I believe hotmail used to be hosted on FreeBSD until it was bought out by MS, that should be a decent volume indicator. I run a very small email list server and it works fine on a p200. I did see a noticable jump in speed when I switched the mail service from sendmail to qmail, so it is also dependant on what you will run. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
