thanks for this..

Right now I'm up to my ears in moving half the company from two
buildings down to one (include a server room move!). But once I've
completed this (4 weeks) I'll give you a shout and see if I scrub up my
php/mysql skills and help out if you want.

I'm trying to get rid of Clearswift's MimeSweeper product as it's a
complete sod to manage/upgrade etc so I'll figure out what extra
features I really need from it and then I'll pop them over to see if we
can work on them together..
