Agreed. :)

No, root emails only go to sysadmin-main. I'd really prefer that to
stay that way. We do get emails with passwords or the like... (bounces
from fas accounts that have invalid emails, etc)

Yeah, I'll go look thru logs and see if there's anything there that
looks problematic. We might be able to just have the system log ones
readable, but leave the httpd ones closed up (those would be the only
ones that might have passwords I would think).
