"anything truly mission critical, like email"

Har, har.

Sorry - this still cracks me up. I'm a systems/network admin at a service provider, so I realize that, apart from connectivity, our two major customer facing services are DNS and email, but it still makes me chuckle when I see the words "critical" and "email" in the same sentence. Maybe I'm just jaded, but to me, "critical" means SCADA or life support, not 50x forwarded Dilbert cartoons.

Sorry for the digression - carry on.
