Hi Deb,

Thanks for this info. I did not know that there was this OSWG group.
I have been trying to pass this info on to as many people as I can. The goal
of the document was to make it easier for anyone to install Qmail.

I will go to the site and start the process. It is very likely that I will be
maintaining the document. I don't want too much verbage added to the document.
Only instructions on howto get the software running.

Thank you once again. I will be in touch with you soon. :-)
