Of course you're right. But when you use a database based mail solution your database can crash and your filesystem can crash.

Personally I trust my filesystem skills more than my database skills :) -- Oliver PETER, email: [EMAIL PROTECTED], ICQ# 113969174 "Worker bees can leave. Even drones can fly away.
