I prefer to have as little complication as possible. I'd verify I have the best backup possible. I wouldn't count on being able to upgrade to non-Enterprise version on the FE since the upgrade from enterprise to standard is not supported (you'll have to shuffle them out, rebuild them, and then reinsert if not using the enterprise to enterprise upgrades). (Since they are only FE's, I may just uninstall Enterprise & reinstall standard) Have you got your lucky rabbit's foot (I realize it wasn't lucky for the rabbit, but for you it might be .... ;) (I might even wear my lucky underoo's) One last question, on the SMTP gateway, how long will it hold messages before NDR's are sent? Can I lengthen it? -Doug Confidentiality Notice: The information contained in this message may be legally privileged and confidential information intended only for the use of the individual or entity named above.
