Hi All,

I've written a web based front-end to MailScanner using a modified
&SQLLogging routine, PHP, MySQL and JpGraph.

Current features:
 ** Recent messages - displays a highlighted view of the last 50 messages
processed by MailScanner and allows you to drill-down for detailed
information on each message.
 ** Reporting - allow you to create filtered HTML reports with graphs (using
 ** Tools - allows you to view the MailScanner.conf file and associated
rules, displays Sophos information such as version/loaded IDE's

This is the first time I've ever released any code - it's functional - but
not pretty.  It should work well for those people who hate trawling through
/var/log/maillog and want a quick overview of what their mail gateway is
doing, and is also good for when you have a Helpdesk manned by people you
don't want logging into you mail gateway but still need access to view stuff
(as in my case).

It probably won't be any good for the people with high throughput of
messages, as the customised SQLLogging routine logs to the database in
real-time, so might slow your gateway down (although I'd be interested if
someone could benchmark it).

Also if anyone can come up with a better name - please do....
