Dan: Thanks for clearing that up.

If I may ask one more thing about the milter-sender:
The only feature I really wanted from the milter was the option to control
the number of connections for "unknown users". I get a lot of those -- 
dozens -- hundreds. I believe that is called the "Rumplestilkin" (sp?)
attack where a search is conducted for good emails on a system.

I have not yet seen this option available inside Sendmail and wonder if
there is one out there yet...?? -- without having to install the milter?
