I think SBS is around $1200 oem, which includes 5 cals. Definitely
limitations in the product, I think in relation to number of mail stores and
mail store size.

Exhcange Standard (OS + $1100) is around $1150 + $100 per user, not
forgetting you need a sever cal per user at around $50 a piece. Limited to 4
mail stores (unlimited size, but the bigger the store, the longer things
take when they go wrong). Maybe more limitations, I'm not 100% aware of

Exchange Enterprise (OS + $1100) around $6500 + $70 per user + Server CAL

All adds up pretty quickly. The bigger it gets, the harder it is to manage.
It unnecessarily soaks up more of our time managing it than any other
product we maintain.

DRM 'manages access' in the same way that jail 'manages freedom.'

Damn, my RAM is full of cats... MEOW!!
