For a clever lad such as yourself, I'm sure that's true.  For one that
has to see at least one concrete see the thing in operation
to understand how the org-names are used....apparently not.

I did see the other orgs name in the headers and recall thinking to
myself, hmmmmm, the mailscanner folks just happen to use the same
acronym as we do at work, what a coincidence.  Something about forests,
trees or snow and blind, not sure which, just  didn't click for some reason.

Thankyou for the tip, it did eventually sink thru my very, very dense skull.
