Thanks for all your replys.....

We are getting allot of spam coming through now.... i am not sure why, 
most of it gets caught as spam but not deleted....even though it looks 
clearly like spam.....an example is below that was not marked as spam at 

I am running MS 4.5.3 and SA 3.1.1 i installed via the tarball scripty 
thing.... should i upgrade to next version?

If so is it a simple as running the install script again? I thought i 
remember someone saying if i used the install script it makes upgrading 

Thanks again for all your guys and gals help... this list is a a great 
resource! And of course MS ROCKS!

Have a great day!
