how remiss of me.  i should have waffled on for a few paragraphs about the fact
that i didn't need a custom transport at first, but that when i decided i

yes, my answers reveal that i actually know what i talk about....that i have
had enough real-world experience on large production mail servers with many

in favour of exim to make ridiculous statements about "sekr1t spells", but it's
not OK to throw stupid arguments like that back in their face?  yeah, right.
