Has anyone successfully setup recurring payments with Authorize.net?

I've seen posted here that their API doesn't really support this, but it
appears they do.  I'm under the understanding that you bill the card
once then get a transaction ID that you can use each month (or whatever)
to bill that card again.  This way, you don't store the card number
locally.  Has this worked for anyone?

Others have suggested Verisign Payflow Pro.  I'd consider this but I've
heard bad things about Verisign.  Is there some general consensus?

What do the big guys use?  (Joyent, Mailroom, et.al.)
