What type of mail storage do you use?

My maildir-bulletin package will deliver mail to all users in a Unix group by 
putting files directly in their Maildir storage.

It uses hard or symbolic links to store the message thus saving huge amounts 
of disk space.  A 10K email sent to 30,000 people will take 300M of disk 
space and may take up to an hour to deliver (depending on how fast your mail 
server is) if done via regular mail delivery, if done using maildir-bulletin 
then it'll take a matter of seconds and only 10K of storage.  Also changing a 
bulletin after you sent it is easy, just edit the file with vi.

I do not get viruses because I do not use MS software.
If you use Outlook then please do not put my email address in your
address-book so that WHEN you get a virus it won't use my address in the
>From field.
