Hmm... luck does not seem to be on my side...
If i file the file it states: "data" does not seem helpfull.

i just now tried the sendmail < file thing with an alteratif recipient but
it comes in all messed up.

So i guess that this is not a RFC822 format. I wonder what it is then, and
if there is any change in getting the quarantines out.
