We'd run a Inter7 supported version of qmail-1.5, of course the nicest thing is we can change nothing and go on happy as clams with our installs of the old patchy, outdated, unsupported qmail that so many seem to hate soooo much. ;^) DAve -- I've been asking Google for a Veteran's Day logo since 2000, maybe 1999. I was told they finally did a Veteran's Day logo, but none of the links I was given return anything but a normal Google logo. Sad, very sad.
