Saturday night or Sunday morning brain dump

Ok. No time for a long post so here goes a couple of quick thoughts.

1. My Colonels may be on to something this year. Hope so anyway. Looked good today and the mess ups went our way.

2. Getting ready to bring a new mail server online this week at work. We went with Zimbra which was just purchased by Yahoo. Looks promissing. Has what we are looking for and we are going to run it on a VMServer box.

3. My buddy Liam and his wife got word this week that their adoption may have hit a huge snag. So drop a quick prayer for them.

4. Going to take the boys to one of the local pumpkin patches after church. They could be making several trips this fall.

Life group and answered prayers

Just wanted to pass this along. Just another good reason to be in a life group. Over the last year or so, my life group has a couple of major prayers answered. Two new jobs, one guy going to be a dad via adoption after finding out they couldn't any other way, good medical test results and one guy adjusting to his new life after a divorce. Just another way of seeing God's amazing power and love for us :)

VMServer and email

Ok, in looking over some spare equipment and hardware at work, I have put together a pretty good server box that I am have put VMServer on and now want to look at moving part of our email over to. Most of the people who get email only get a basic email account while a select few get an Exchange account. For those who get basic email, we are using iMail but we may consider moving them over to something else.

Anybody have any ideas on a good open source email package that runs good on vmserver? The server has a Pent. 4 3ghz processer with a 1.25 GB of memory which we wil upgrade later. It has a 300GB SATA drive pluse we can add more later so we are in pretty good shape hardware wise. Now we just need to look for a good email package.
