-}FreeBSD makes a fine mailserver.
It certainly does.
A few months ago I did some testing and found that freebsd 5.4 with softupdates
enabled was able to process IIRC ~300% more email than fedora core 4. In fact
sendmail on fbsd 5.4 handled nearly as much email as postfix on fc4 while
postfix on fbsd 5.4 was smokin' the wire. I still have the hard data around
somewhere if you think it'll be useful to you.
