I cannot name any company name but I used to work for a large
telecommunications provider. They are world leader for supplying mobile
operators with core network solutions like SMS and WAP. While designing
their MMS solution they had to choose an MTA to handle all the email
involved in MMS. Of all the options, they choose qmail becuase it was
secure, scalable and very reliable. Also their idea of scalable and
reliale is 99.999% uptime and 200 msg/sec.
That secures qmail as my mail server, always!!
