very good, we're thinking along the same lines here.

>Well ... where should this be documented better?

what i meant was that the send manpage for example just says 'if you have dcc
and anything but sendmail/pipe then...' but doesn't say what happens
when you're on pipe.
it's similar regarding that bcc is meant to produce those warning
encrustations; not having used non-silent bcc in decades
i couldn't figure that out fully from the manpages, but had to look
at the source.

no problem, i'll try to update the send and post manpages where applicable.

thanks for your advice; i'll work towards these in the next few days
and will let you know when i have something workable.
