This has been suggested and being consider. However, the point of this
milter is to notify the users, not the admin., because I got tired of
being asked the question "How can a I know what's being rejected by your
Derek did pointed out that during a testing phase it would be best to
direct the reports to the administrator until satisified with it
There are some issues in doing this though. The way the data is
structured, I'd end up sending <postmaster> one email per recipient;
sending one master report might not be possible without resorting to
temporary file to build that report. Also when the reports are emailed,
unknown users (typically as the result of name dictionary attacks) are
identified at that time and dropped; in building a master report, that
filtering would not occur, resulting in lots of bogus entries to the
postmaster report. Anyways. I'll have to think about this.

I'll add it to the list, but remember that if you relay mail for users
on another server, the actual recipient user might not be unique so,
might be what you get in the end. Anyways, I have functions to support
this stuff for what I do in milters-spamc and -bcc, so if I choose to
provide a send-only-postmaster option then plus-details should be possible.
But it will have to wait until after my trip next week.
