For anyone interested in a commercial MTA, check out SurgeMail - it is commercial, has a lot of nice features, web interface, built in webmail, and with the 3.1 version, they are bundling in their previously optional filesharing/calendar app - SurgePlus. And for pretty decent prices I think -

For example:
     5 user license - $Free
 100 user license - $470
1000 user license - $570 and so forth.

Perhaps it is because I am a C coder and actually can and do modify OSS software, but I just don't see the point in using a commercial MTA when there are so many excellent, proven free ones. It's not like all we have is sendmail anymore. I hate being at the mercy of some closed source developer who can take months to fix a one line security flaw I could patch myself in 2 minutes.
