Hi Vic, I think they use another piece of software called something like Graymail that lets users config it.

So far the service is running okay - but needs a lot of | tweaking, specially running under qmail [that's the Linux mail server] | | We [My Boss and myself] worked on it for 3 hrs today and it still misses | quite a fair bit of mail and designates other mail as spam while it is | not, I guess there is still a fair bit of tweaking ahead of us. | At the moment we are running it on only 2 email addresses , mine and my | boss's. But looking through the logs we see that my email contributes to | about 1/10 of all the email we receive !!!! [Yep believe me I receive | way to much mail - LOL]. | | As yet we have not figured out how to set up things so that each user | can set his/her own preferences, under qmail [Linux] mail boxes are | read-only, so no one except for administrators can play round with the | mail. We shall see, lots more to learn. | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | TTFN | | Vic | | "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and | the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics | and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to | find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by | a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know | even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | --- | Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free. | Checked by AVG anti-virus system (http://www.grisoft.com). | Version: 6.0.449 / Virus Database: 251 - Release Date: 27/01/2003 | | | To unsubscribe from this list send an email to | pcductape-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field | OR by logging into the Web interface. | To unsubscribe from this list send an email to pcductape-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface.
