That is the first real misconception you need to overcome. 5.0 and 5.1 aren't 
really "different". They are the same software at different patch levels. 
Similar to Windows XP with service pack 1 and Windows XP with service pack 2. 
There are very few reasons to stay with an older release of the software, and 
if you don't know what those reasons are, you don't need to use the older 

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
