Can you send me an example router input file that generates a core dump.
I haven't been able to duplicate this problem on our router.

We do have a problem with the router core dumping when the Sender: line
contains something like "[12]".

I would like to know if this problem exists in the mea version if not or 
if this is fixed in the mea version I sure would like to know the fix.
A sample input file would be:

to user
From: usera
Sender: user-[12]

Thanks, Edwin.
