Please give me more details on what you guys want added, etc. Since the two
functions are really the same it would be easiest just to add some extra
options to the code. And a sourceforge project is fine. Just was curious how
it got there. And whomever added the patch's can take over maintaining it
there and I can give them some updates or he can code. I have been very busy
with work so my extra time has gone to sleeping.

Not sure if Inter7 is going to keep handling the dev. What is the story with
vpopmail and qmailadmin? Sourceforge is a great place. Use it almost daily.
