Thats been my experience too.  The problem right now though is most of the boston office is off on Egypt Air. (I didn't know what the agent meant by "newport" at first) Though I have no idea what they are really going to do about that.  Tape is pretty clear cut. Everyone is dead. Whats there to figure out?

Would. But there isn't/hasn't been one. Talking with Dan Senie offline about SMTP AUTH.  Might be more widely deployed than I knew.
