there are two ways in which a message would drop off the face of the earth 
... Spamassassin scored it high enough to be considered spam, or the virus 
checker detected a virus :(  In both cases, the messages are just drop'd 
into /dev/null ...

Thanks to all...  it's importing now.  I'm still learning Linux after
upgrading from Windows.  Moving the file to another dir (\tmp) did it.   Jon

Don't forget that you'll need to set permissions on all the intermediate
directories as well as the file itself. It is probably safer to put the file
somewhere else than to make /root world-accessible. /tmp or an ordinary
user's home directory would be possibilities.
