Correct, nothing found, I do actually get off my ass and reserach 
what I can first.


So what would be the impact to having a very large httpd.conf file,
having to read in, perhaps many thousands of extra directory blocks?
If only 100 or 1000 want it thats fine, but if i end up with 10+K
wanting it, I would like to know what impact I may expect, what would be 
the memory use for each additional directory block? As from what I can 
tell the only issue would I'd run into is memory related, and maybe taking 
a little bit longer to start whislt reading in the conf files (the vhosts 
are (and members will also be)) separate included files anyway to keep 
things a bit tidy.

Or perhaps I just use the old flatfile method, and tolerate any slowness 
it causes.. But if we can have our CRM do it, it avoids staff wasting 
their time :)


I read usenet and lists in pine. But m$ outlook, thunderbird and gmail
often use html span/whatever for quotes, makes it hard to tell who said
what, so I dont try. If I ignore you, thats why! Use a compliant mailer.
