Dear Glenn,

Thank you very much. You gave me an extremely good alternative work on.

Wonderful thing about MailScanner which I have noticed in documentation 
and which I have not yet thoroughly used is using rules for most of the 
configuration options. I think I should be using more rules.

Best regards,
