As a former Exchange administrator, I agree completely! It is far too
complicated to install and maintain, not to mention having to be
constantly vigilant against viruses, Trojans, spam, etc., and it is too
dependent on the underlying operating system. 

On the plus side, it does ensure that there is a job for some poor
individual,  lowly-paid though it may be (not enough to ever buy a car,
but enough to go to McDonald's), to reboot the server, restart the
services and occasionally reformat and re-install. 

Linux (Postfix!) is much better, but the level of expertise that is
required, the political hoops you have to jump through, and the
vilification from the next admin taking over from you may make it seem
not so worthwhile for the money you get paid.

Depressing, huh?
