Yep, that's the way I want to do it.  It works out really well for 
me.  My current issue is getting the right value into MaxBytes.  I am 
having a horrible time remembering the simple conversions for 10BT, 
100BT, DSL, T1, etc...  Driving kuku for Coco Puffs. :-)

After rereading your message, I think it is working but not the way 
you want it to.  Normally it should set the maximum value accepted to 
MaxBytes unless AbsMax is defined.  With AbsMax defined it will 
accept value up to AbsMax and print a red line where MaxBytes is. 
Its not something that could be control with scripts or anything of 
the like I don't belive so it would probably require another 
directive to make it do what you're wanting.  Maybe Toby can 
implement that in the next version.  Who wants to word that better 
and present it to Toby as a possible new idea?  Does anyone else have 
any ideas?

PS==> Albert, I would send you these messages directly but it appears 
that your provider uses ORBS to filter mail and my University somehow 
got listed. #$%^&*!!!! :-(
