Alexander,

Thanks for pointing out the correction to my post. I forgot sendmail's
access_db format does not understand CIDR notation. :-( Add this as
"another" reason why I switched to using postfix as my MTA last year.

BTW: Why are you sending all of your posts PGP signed? i.e.

Content-type: multipart/signed; micalg=pgp-sha1;
	protocol="application/pgp-signature";

It's a royal PITA for me to reply to any of your posts. Plus, I have to open
up 3 e-mails just to view them.
