Perhaps you've not benchmarked the I/O throughput capabilities of any
decent HP server....

You'll need either multiple ATA controllers (one channel per disk
please), or a very good high-end SCSI controller and disks, to even come
close to what an HP can do.  You also need at minimum good ECC RAM and
other server features to even come close to the same quality server.
You might be able to buy a basic server for around $2,000, sans disk
and RAM, etc.  I'd bet on spending closer to $5,000 by the time you get
anywhere near a complete system capable of doing what I'm guessing is
required.  Maybe that's $5K Canadian, but still a TON more thnan $400.

Your network's MTA, or your own MUA, is broken.
