We should all be grateful for the work you and the other contributors do
with MailScanner. How many other pieces of software get new features
pretty much on request, and all of them passed on to the community at
large! I have no complaints, especially since you usually add these
features and ship them disabled by default so as not to cause confusion
and problems.

Hats off to you! And a great big thank you!

If the PTB's don't spring for the book by the first of the year, I am
just going to break down and buy it myself!
