Indeed, I'm not aware of any certification that applies to system 
administrators.  Network administrators have certs that are 
well-recognized and accepted.  Mail admins?  Server admins?  The certs 
that are out there border on jokes or disguised sale pitches.  

Have you seen neteng certs lately?  I'm forced to maintain a
lower level one to keep my job and it makes me angry every
time I have to do it.  The sales pitch is hidden in the words 
and the correct answer is almost always something that has to
do with the proprietary item the vendor has.
