[Mimedefang] Mail Admin Question

Well some of us are not quite so stupid as we choose
Linux/Sendmail/MimeDefang/SpamAssassin as well as Exchange.

It's a case of horses for courses ..

For usability, I have never seen anything that competes with Outlook
integrated with Exchange for workgroup collaboration.

For relaying email I prefer SM/MD/SA for speed, protection and

But you have to consider that not everyone wants to spend their whole
life tweaking various settings in various config files.

Most small businesses simply want to use what they can that will allow
their users to integrate with their chosen word processor or spreadsheet
on their chosen desktop system best.

I manage a whole load of mail accounts so I have the time and
inclination to tweak but most of my customers don't.

We give them Exchange because it integrates with their desktop apps and
I relay mail for them because its fast and can be tweaked easily.

I can see the benefits of both sides, my question was simply, why is
there an assumption that the problem is caused by a badly managed
Exchange system?

I didn't mean to stir up a hornets nest.
