The MailWatch front-end uses php to talk to the database and has nothing to 
do with perl.. It is only the MailWatch.pm file that hooks on to mailscanner 
(not mailwatch) and logs to the database. 

Anyways, i have zero benefit from you using mailwatch, though a lot of us do 
and do so quite well. btw a quick check on the mailwatch-users archive 
doesn't show any postings from you, looks like you are complaining about 
mailwatch without asking for any help ever..
