Brian Buhrow and I replaced a completely failing 
database-synchronization-over-Microsoft-Exchange system with UUCP across 
American President Lines and Neptune Orient Lines fleets, back in the mid-90s.  
UUCP worked perfectly (Exchange connections were failing ~90% of the time), was 
much faster (average sync time on each change reduced from about three minutes 
to a few seconds), and saved them several million dollars a year in satellite 
bandwidth costs.

UUCP kicks ass.
