I promise I will actively look at this as soon as I get some free time. I
never really pursued it because, frankly, I have my own stuff that does all
that I need and is specifically designed to work with the rest of my server
management toos. Yesterday is the most time I have ever spent on it. Before
I try it again I will install the latest Bundle::DBD:mysql and see if that
helps (I think I already have the latest but I will check). I will also make
sure I have the latest MailWatch as it's been awhile since I even tried it.

I never ment to 'dis' MailWatch, and I am aware a lot of admins use it
sucessfully and I should not have enjoined the conversation in the first
place, unless I had something constructive to say.
