Sure.  I've added it and have it attached, but for future reference what 
diff command options do I use? (I'm still reacclimating to *nix - 
forgive me, the lure of Window$ sucked the memories from me 8)

I subscribed to both User and Dev at the same time 8)

I should have specified for POP3.

As long as it works with all configuration storage methods I'm fine with

These really only become aliases.  Quotas don't change, and since the 
primary userid always has to be in the name and a connecting character 
(like "." or "_") the name couldn't be mistaken for someone elses id.
Not sure what type of accounting you mean (like in the case where a 
person is charged by email address quantity?)

I'm still reading up on the process, but, in effect, what I want to 
accomplish is the following scenario:
For email address 1234.MyUser@Mydomain only users at *@somebiz.com
can send to me, otherwise the mail server returns a User Unknown
message of some type.
