Talk about making it difficult!

I understand that is the way we have been doing things, I am trying to point
a better way! Nearly every one who downloads 1.7 winds up needing 1.8.

I dunno about that.  A lot of people using SIMS are using it on internal networks to handle internal email, or to process email that has already hit a previous server.  As such, 1.7 is fine.  Only people that have SIMS actually exposed directly to the Internet need the features in 1.8.

But Stalker has a policy of not making the beta versions available via the web (the betas are in the ftp) and they only make the dev version avaialble on request.  It's their policy.
