obviously this is going to affect quite a few people here on the list, so
i'll mail about what is happening with accounts.. account will be unusable
from the 19th onward. the machines will be upgraded to Solaris 2.3 so
having mail aliases on acacia/banksia/wattle will be an impossibility. and
having a @nospam.uts.edu.au mail alias means that you will still have a different
mail address, and _may_ take some time to set up, so you will probably
find telling people to mail you at ftoomsh your easiest option. if any one
else has questions about the upgrade, mail me...
