	I think it's quite safe to say it's free for you to use.

	Well, Rayan would be the best person to answer this. The software is
made available freely for use. Therefore there should be no problems using it
in your faculuty/facility.

	This is something that Rayan does when he has time and considering
that he is usually pretty busy.....

	There is no new release at the moment. But it's my understanding that
it's being worked on.

	I do have a Solaris 2.3 port, made available for anonymous ftp from
ftp.csri.toronto.edu:/pub/edwin/zmailer.tar.Z. Standard disclaimer applies.
