He said no flaws, cert.org and friends only track security flaws, not other kinds of flaws. And cert.org and friends are only as good as the reports submitted to them. I would offer the suggestion that if every mail admin out there using qmail was not a mail expert, that it is unlikely that security flaws would be noticed or reported. In the last analysis, the absense of a particular piece of software from a security notification list is NOT proof that the software has no security flaws. You cannot prove a negative in this case. Ted PS I routinely use 6 year old software myself. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
