Yes.  And yes.  Openmail 6.0 with EP1 and a patch from EP2 seems real 
stable with outlook2k here.  Using it for 50 users here and it works 
great (even on our old, overloaded P133/32mb).  Why does everyone think 
Exchange is so stable and great anyway?  They're both buggy, but I 
think Exchange is buggier.  

In our situation, we only had a P133, and you'll have more problems 
from running NT+Exchange on a P133 then you will from openmail.
