Wow. That sounds ideal. The last time I RTFM was in 2002 or 2003,
I think. I haven't upgraded since then, so I guess it's time to read about
the new features.
So, vpopmail is a sourceforge project now? Is inter7 still a heavy developer,
or are you guys getting more attached to the bottom line these days?
I think going with sourceforge was a great idea, BTW.
