Cygnus does a reasonable business supporting GNU software.

Re: your comment about Telecom Finland making ZMailer its commercial
product.  Certainly they couldn't restrict access to the free zmailer
software, as per the copyrights.  I doubt they could even make a
commercial version without Rayan's approval.  Of course they could pay
you to build a product very much *like* zmailer (that might well be a
better product based on almost 10 years experience with zmailer).

So I don't think Alexis has much to worry about in terms of zmailer
becoming restricted.

Who knows, NLTel might want to buy a support contract from Telecom
Finland, so that Alexis can do other things.

You might want to look at <A HREF="http://xach.dorknet.com/gimp/news/">GIMP</a>
as way to generate way-cool zmailer logos.
