Thanks for the "proof read" Julian.

I've got bigger problems.  SA suddenly started rating most of my mail at 255
(including all mail from this list).  It also appears to be called twice

X-MailScanner: Found to be clean, Found to be clean
X-MailScanner-SpamCheck: SpamAssassin (255 hits)
X-MailScanner-SpamCheck: SpamAssassin (255 hits)

I turned off SA for now.  I will investigate further tomorrow.

Ok, fair enough.  I've got a long way to go before I can pitch in, but its a
personal goal.

Thanks again
