"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Unless you tell us how exactly it is unreliable, that's probably the best answer you will get - use ExBPA.

Exchange itself is very reliable.  I have run Exchange in SBS environments and myself in a non-SBS environment for nearly 4 years.  Never had a problem.  The biggest reliability issue has been the internet connection - and that really has nothing to do with Exchange.
