Our radio society uses it too at the moment. Although its habit of crashing
whenever you W an uknown directory is annoying. NOS has far more functionality,
it has digipeated path support for IP (needed for FlexNET), it has just about
usable NetROM protocol support and it has a lot of utilities and neat additions
for amateur radio (compressed email etc).

Without wanting to knock the NOS smtp it is but a toy compared with the 
'real thing' sendmail. Equally however the real sendmail alone wouldn't
run in a 640K PC and most people don't need the power.
