I started using xmail around 2005 and at that time
also had about four remote users.

Main system here changed over time and is currently
NetBSD. When a security vulnerability relevant to my
setup is announced I rebuild the main base system, 
ntpd, xmail and other affected packages. XMail uses
a few third party programs that are from either base
system, NetBSD pkgsrc or local imports. 

I've always been setup so that a delay is introduced
so that email from point and shoot mailers or
mailers that don't retry isn't received but 
unfortunately "hotmail" is currently one of those.
