I don't think so. I hear good things about it but I am really suspect of a
program that cannot do the important, and really most basic, task it needs
to function. The same information from the MailWatch.pm works fine in the
php front end. I personally use DBI:mysql in a couple of perl daemons and I
have never had an issue, have never had to scratch my head and wonder WTF. I
have glanced (glanced) at the code and I don't see any reason this program
should perform differently than any other using the DBI mod. Not worth
digging through trying to come up with the problem.
