Odd.   Not sure why.

If it were my spam filters (they are rather aggressive), you would have 
gotten a different message.

I'll look into it.

I'll post the .x86_64.rpm and the .src.rpm files onto 
ftp://ftp.redfish-solutions.com/ ... they should be there shortly 
(within 15 minutes).

Wasn't sure if I should make "run from inetd (xinetd)" be the default or 
not.  Anyone have any strong preferences?  Using xinetd doesn't add a 
lot of overhead, except maybe on a very high volume site... and it does 
allow the use of tcp-wrappers with no additional configuration (whereas 
using mod_wrap.so in standalone mode requires a little more work).
