  Thanks! Would you mind if I asked a stupid perl question? In the file
/usr/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner/Config.pm you use "new FileHandle"
quite a few times. Where does the object "FileHandle" come from?

  I am trying to steal from your Config.pm to read in the config file
for the MailScanner log analyzer I am writing :-)
