Way to error-prone for my taste. What about the luser that accidentally
drops 5000 messages in there <shudder>... no thanks... ;)

That is what this thread is about...

Yeah, but I don't see a sane way to handle that one, and the client
would definitely have to have direct support for 'it', whatever it
turned out to be. I'm only interested in server-side solutions and was
just hoping that the LSA proxy idea might be doable and wouldn't be too

Wishing I was a coder (for the 12th time today already)... or had the
time to learn...
