This Whitepaper will attempt to address some frequently asked questions about the core differences between open source Mail Transfer Agents (MTAs) and commercial MTAs.  The target audience consists of deliverability professionals, mainly senders who consider digital messaging a mission critical component of their compay's overall communication requirements.  It will discuss the main differences between open source and commercial mailing platforms, and provide particular detailed insight to those entitites considering the upgrade to a commercial MTA product.  This paper will also explain why making the switch may qualify as long term cost-effective investment and where pain-points might currently exist in a company's particular sending enviornment.
