I would not normally post 'jobs' to the list, however this chappie has the
courtesy to telephone me and ask how best to approach our members. It
appears it's a pretty decent Server Admin job in New York, responsible for
running some 100+ Redhat boxes for a bank.

Jason tells me it's a high calibre job with high a salary ticket, so
thought someone may be interested?

Perhaps if you are also happy, you may like to forward to your lists?

Retchmail also supports spop (and is much simpler and faster, but doesn't do
multidrop or other things fetchmail gets wrong itself).  APOP should be in
the snapshots now.  There is interest in someone updating fastforward to
support SSLing a port forward.  There's already SSL support in its stream
library, so shouldn't be too hard.  It's just that it's not been needed yet,
so no-one's written it.

Fastforward is a fast port forwarder that tries not to waste more CPU or
memory than absolutely necessary.  It's with retchmail at
http://open.nit.ca/ Maybe if you're not interested, someone in your LUG
might be?  Feel free to forward this request onwards.  Thanks.
