Understood. Thanks for the consideration. It is, at present, minor.
Two other things (earlier threads) are much higher up the MS wish-list:
o thread "Anti-spear-phishing sa-update channel"; sub-thread about MS
installation (on Centos etc., at least) putting as much in place as
reasonably possible (scripts, cron jobs) to reduce end-user stuff as
much as reasonably possible
o crash-resilience (the discussion about MS/perl segfaulting etc; and
avoiding its side-effects by (perhaps) a lightweight database of email
actively being processed etc.)
If you go ahead, I'm happy to try to beta-test them.
All the best.
