	Solunds like a win.. hopefully.   Can you sent me the mailtable
	that I might use to have "kline at thought.org" goto zen.thought.org
	and zivic at thought.org be forwarded to ns1.thought.org, and
	grzegorz at thought.org be sent to ethos.thought.org?  I see an
	example as the  equivalent of 10K words.

	Is there ay way of testing this after I have set up my table
	entries?  In other words, how do I re-initialize things without
	having to  (ugh) *reboot*.

	thanks much,
