Hi Alex,

It's OK - I don't view it as a flame.  I am a seasoned sysadmin and if 
you notice my one & only question was if anyone had smfsav or anything 
similar running on their box :)

And since this list is for MailScanner, my question is relevant because 
I'm running MailScanner as an external filter and as such doing 
recipient address verification is to be expected?  That's rhetorical, btw.

Hope you don't view it as a flame ;)  Have a nice day.
