Price is one factor.  8.x has been reliable for years, though some minor 
annoyances were introduced in 8.22 that require service restarts with some 
simple changes.

Also, I find logging for IMail to be much better than Exchange.  Any company 
providing mail services must have good logging.

Then there's the issue of spam filtering.  When we started filtering back 
around 2001, plugins were a common method of providing filtering.  Imail had 
much better plugins.  While a gateway is the better route for reliability 
reasons, we still use plugins for additional filtering.

I have imail on a test system but so far that's where it's been. Our
production servers are all exchange boxes.

Please don't be offended when I ask/say this ((I don't mean anything
bad by this) it seems that there are a lot of issues with imail each
time a new patch, version or upgrade comes out. What benefits do you
be from imail vs exchange? Besides the cost issue what is imail doing
better than exchange?
