I do not agree with that general sentence at all !  
That is akin to saying "something is secure or it is not". No, nothing ever is 
100% secure, and neither is "100% reliable" an attainable goal.

But going back to the ISP. They have so much mail that they have multiple 
frontends and backends. Many of them. Are you suggesting that they should 
revert to a one-single-box mail hub to _improve_reliability_ ?  I think not.
