Some mail software scales better than others. ;)

And yes, we *DID* have one large software vendor admit that at the time,
they'd need a 300-system cluster to handle all our 70K users.  We ended up
with a single Sun system instead.  Not sure if said vendor scales any better now -
we have like 6 or 7 machines to handle the 2,000 or so users we have on their
package (but that's including test and backup boxes...)
