Here's the output from the log when I fired a test message at it;

No offence is ever taken from advice I get from these mailing lists, it's how I learn things!

Done it again just to be sure.

Slightly different procedure on a RaQ but it has the same effect. Still no luck, the emails are
still accepted.
