   Happy emailing!
   
   BUGS:
  -
  -The man sendmail page is incorrectly formatted, i will need to write a sed
  -script to fix the page...
   
   Procmail, despite being suid root, is running as smmsp and is therefore unable
   to read user's .forward files unless their home directories are world readable!
