I got the patches but I'm out of the office.  I'll test it first thing in the morning.  Thanks for the great ammo to fire back with.

		        - block/quarantine any messages sent using S/MIME to a particular domain or domains (e.g. encrypted mail from   joe at microsoft.com to jane at lotus.com)
		        - block/quarantine any messages NOT sent using S/MIME (e.g. mail from billg at microsoft.com to some_lawyer at biglaw.com)
		        These features alone are worth the cost for many enterprises, where fear of legal hassles often outweighs purchase and maintenance costs.
		Might be a worthy feature.  Let me know if it's possible so I can continue my argument.  Thanks.

	I wonder how many of his "multi-thousand dollar spam-filtering software" packages would have been able to deliver his new favourite features in about 3 1/2 hours?
