A free stack-only version was released for a limited time and we gave out
over 1000 copies of it which will never expire, however, we are a business
and have to make money by sales so we stay around. Therefore, we had to
take the tool off the market because it was seriously interfering with the
marketing of our commercial products.

This list is configured such that just hitting reply is going to result in
the message coming to the list, not to the individual who sent the message.
This was done to help reduce the number of Out of Office messages posters
received. So if you want to send a reply just to the poster, you''ll have to
copy their email address out of the message and place it in your TO: field.
