Ok. I'd like to run the mbox thing by Jim to see if he has any 
reservations about that (writing to the FS, potential effect on 
security, etc.) I also need to talk to the License Gods to see 
if we need anything beyond a verbal OK from the timeoutsocket

We need to get the relevent "official" documentation updated 
(help system pages and anything in the Zope book that deals 
with MailHost up-to-date). Chris McDonough is nominally in 
charge of making sure doc updates are taken care of 
([EMAIL PROTECTED]). You can send doc updates (or pointers to 
them) to him.

Thanks. I've updated the plan. Hopefully I can run the 
mbox stuff by the Zope Pope tomorrow and get back to you
