Hi there,
Just wanted to say very nice prog as well as need a bit of help.
We are monitor some backup mailservers that have small amounts of mail ie 5
incoming and 2 outgoing in 5 mins type thing. the data that is to be input
is calculated every 5 mins (remote site, we are using web and wget for that
(no need to worry about ftp and passwords) and big long file name). every 5
mins on the linux box the stats script is run, and the data on the page is
different from the data from the mailserver's stats. ie 3 incoming and on
the page it says 4 incoming or 5 incoming and the page says 4 .  some times
it says none when one has come through. please find below a copy of the
stats and the cfg file. I've spent ages trying to work it out any help
