-------------------------------------------------------Do you think PSS
will listen to us, looking at the fact our customer for whom we do the
remote management, is still using Exchange 5.5? To be honoust, I wouldnt
blame them if they would simply hang up the phone as soon as I mention
"Exchange 5.5" :-)
