Thanks Ted,

The money will go towards the new mail server I purchased last month. I
needed to replace the mail server we have been using for years do to
spammers hijacking the server. The old version of NTMail, the mail server I
had been using, would not allow me to block the spammers from using my
system. Upgrading to the new version NTMail would have cost over $1K so I
started looking for a cheaper server. After trying some cheaper servers
that didn't work, or did not have the features I needed, I ended up with
MailSite (see It was a little cheaper then the new
version of NTMail and after contacting the company and explaining that
their server would be used for the PSN and a few other mailboxes for my
personal usage they lowered the price to $800.00. Still a lot of money, but
I couldn't spend any more time looking for another server.

When the spammers hit my system, my system was temporary placed on a
blacklist as an open mail server. Some ISP's use this list to block email so 
I needed to get something work quickly so everyone would receiver messages
sent from my system. It was also taking a lot of my time evaluating servers
so when I found this server that had every I needed including blocking
spammers  I went for it.
