Thomas, I would try contacting Helios and see what they say as far as
Linux distros are concerned. And not to be a broken record, but I think
that Debian for Alpha is pretty well supported. But Paul, I'm sure you'd
*love* to do that job, eh?

(And incidentally, next week is a good time for me for the whole
mailserver thing.)

This is a great use of the forum, in my opinion. We're a small enough
and a tight enough group that we can do this kind of thing for each
other, and talk about these kinds of issues as a group.

Beaujolais! One more proprietary server down in favor of Free SOftware!
