And what do you think you're doing by continuously coming back with 
phantom problems that no-one else experiences because they don't exist?

And how about your insistence on having your mail setting the way _you_ 
like it rather than how the rest of the group, who you expect to help 
you for free, might appreciate them?

Well, you obviously _haven't_ set these up correctly or you wouldn't be 
having these problems. I've set up many instances of Zope on Windows 
over the years, many of them behind Apache, many of them CMF based and 
some even Plohn, and I've never had the problems you're whining about.

I _know_ I'm not in the minority here.

My suggestion would be to go to a Plohn list that might be more 
forgiving in putting up with lazy incompetent people who just don't seem 
to get it. Either that or just give up on Zope/Plohn entirely and go 
somewhere else...

Failing that, you could always pay someone competent to configure your 
system for you *grinz*
