Nice. Thanks for that, I've already started looking at it.
However, I had one problem with an email address from yahoo.com's
groups, which includes an '=' inside the user portion of the email.
I admit, this is perhaps outside the rules you made for the check_email_validity
function, but I've got a diff if thats any help (I don't think this is a bug,
perhaps something unique with a single system).

I see I'm going to have to be careful with any internal email that resolves
to a 192.168 address... 
Will have to see how this does with a logging only section for a couple of days.

Keep up the great work!!!
