Hmm that low huh?  The web server hosts the company web site and it sends
approximately 60 MB/day.  The mailing-list server on the other hand would be
more of a test at this point and it would probably be very very low traffic
(2-3 lists with 10-20 subscribers each).  Would it involve a lot of pain to
transfer the Mailing lists to a separate email server further down the road?
I wouldn't think it would be too bad, but I'm sure you have a better idea
than myself.

Thanks for taking the time to respond.
