Okay, I see the smiley at the end of your message, but you didn't offer
any possible solutions to his problem. I realize his tone may have been
a bit harsh, but when you've got a bunch of users screaming at you because
your mail server crashes, you tend to get a bit testy. Next time you decide
to be a smartass, how about thinking about ways to assist the person
with the problem, rather than turning them off to Linux altogether. Jokes
have their place, but this wiseass comment was totally out of line. Sean,
my recommendation to you is to send a message to postmaster@vger.rutgers.edu
and see if the cause of your problem is actually with the listserver. I
apologize
for Brian's comment, and I hope you realize that not all of us are this
thoughtless. Sorry for the flame here, but I don't feel that we can win people
over to Linux as an alternative os by telling them that the one they are using
now is inadequate.
