Hi again,
	Many thanks for the above & your last reply. I'm still unsure 
as to why my posts are being held prior to being sent - they are 
getting through, but something about a 'suspcicous header'. Possibly 
because my address is actually sent from our own network, not via my 
original ISP server.
	From what I can gather, I can add your above suggestion to 
mm_cfg.py & rerun the config? Thnks again for your replies.

	Bye for now, Terry Allen
