Thank you for the idea. I did not know about the TURNME command.

I just found the problem a little bit ago. This past weekend, I also
recreated the zmailer RPM that I have been working on. Because of this,
I had to create a second log directory. The error logs were getting put
in the new directory. I did not think to look in there until I started 
to clean up. 

The problem was that there was no command entry for the two domains. I 
thought that the smtp/* entry was above my entries. At least I assume 
that the smtp/dbc-mifco.com entry would take on all the settings from
smtp/* and */*. Am I wrong?

Now that leaves the question: how are the hold channels used?
