  • Huh? IBM wins Scenario 2, but MS Exchange wins overall?
    Sorry? And MS costs almost as much for 25 users as Domino does for 200 users!? And your rating is 3.5 to 4.5!

    I am not a raving Domnio person either - I have installed a demo, but not fully committed to either: In fact I need Scenario 0.5 - 100 users, mulitple offices.

    Which I guess is somewhere else IBM comes ahead - you can run multiple servers, as it is licensed *per user*. Unlike Exchange, whose cost skyrockets if you want redundancy!

    Your report seems to have some bias in that it also did not price MSeX for wither Scenario - just gave one simple price!
