Hi Anne,

I've been troubleshooting email since supporting Worldtalk's X.400 gateway in the 1990s. Since then, I've been a professional SMTP and LDAP consultant. My current clients are AT&T, The Gap, and SKHMS. I have just barely 5-10 hours a week but since I've been looking for a house to buy here in California since March, the prices have increased by 10% and upwards, so I'm kind of motivated to work extra right now.

The thing though is you might find someone cheaper than me. I'll quote you $150/hour for this work right now.

Many thanks!
