"I used to sell furniture for a living. The trouble was, it was my own." - Les Dawson.

So the other day we purchased and installed a new mail server to allow us to expand our user base beyond what it is. Our current CPU (dual P2 450s) was starting to lag during heavy load. We picked up a Dual Xeon 2.4 ghz, 2 gigs of ram, and a RAID-1 SCSI HD configuration. That thing is really starting to smoke. I'm really suprised at the shear amount of AppleTalk traffic it's pushing now.

AppleTalk Throughput Test v1.4b

That's at least 4 times what the previous server was getting. This server is really smoking, I'm really digging it!
