When you say an accurate report, it's not logging the detections in the
maillog? I am still at 4.46.2 because there were so many changes after that
I haven't had the desire to rebuild the two patches I have to integrate into
each new MS release but I suppose I can try and get to it this weekend and
see if something might have changed to affect the logging. It seemed like I
had to do something to prevent double logging and perhaps that was fixed and
now it doesn't log anything?
