Well I figured I'd have to get MS doing what it needed to first before I 
could start with MW but I would hazard a guess and say you've pointed me 
in exactly the direction I needed and need to store messages. Off host 
learning is not a major issue we don't have enough mail volume and users 
to be concerned with it but even so the more load I can take off myself 
processing messages the better I guess
