If you have to use Windows for an email server (don't recommend it), the
only decent daemon is LSMTP from LSoft. As mail servers go, LSMTP is
often superior on a Windows machine to that of a *nix machine in terms
of performance. You of course still have to deal with the reliability
issues of Windows, but that is not LSMTP's fault.
