I love that phrase, Im going to make a note of that! Its just how I felt
reading some of the emails today.

Yeah thats because it takes the first email address on the To: list as
the primary one it is intended for. The problem is that it doesnt
actually know or care what itsown domain is, and so it isnt sure who the
local delivery target is. I'll try and fix that, sorry {;-)
Im the meantime I still am not sure why, after 3 years of not making a
mistake, it made one, weirdness.
