Default Which release recommended for mail server

I'm totally new to FreeBSD. I come from a slackware and Gentoo background and was attracted to FreeBSD as a platform for my mail server(due to better security and stability). I've installed release 8.1, and gather that i can track the security branch for this for some time. Would you recommend an earlier relase(for stability) or just upgrading to 8.2 and then tracking the security branch for that release?
Thank you for any help and advice
regards Unixjingleman

I have setup 8.1-RELEASE some time ago for mail purposes (postfix/dovecot/spamassassin) and I only apply security updates, but as I would be 'doing' that setup now, I would chose 8.2-RELEASE or even latest 8.2-STABLE snapshot.

Linux is not UNIX! Face it! It is not an insult. It is fact: GNU is a recursive acronym for “GNU's Not UNIX”.
