This could be a long drawn out thread...
Let me start...
1) No disk quota controls. Let's say you designate drive "D", which has 2.0 gigabytes of space as your internet drive...
irrelevant whether it's inside or outside the firewall. It is possible to flood that disk's entire space with "flood
mail" or "fake mail" because you cannot impose a quota on disk usage.
2) No port control...Try it, if you can. This is not available on NT 4.0 either unless they change things on the GA
Opppss... Don't get me wrong, I'm not implying that you should not use NT. That's a call for you to make.
