Thanks for the pointer. I have just tried changing it to flock and 
we'll see how it goes.

Upgrading seems to have helped quite a bit on squelching the spam 
that's been coming through.

Thanks again for MailScanner. Your work and the help of all on this 
list help me look good to my users. When I have it configured 
correctly, that is!

Have a good rest of the week, and I will follow up with what I see on 
the empty emails in the next few days.
