Ahh. You need to run the "getwhitelist" program to fetch the current
whitelist from SURBL. Just noticed that wasn't in the "quick
instructions" part of the web site, so I've updated that. Mea cupla. :-)

Not currently, but from the TODO in the documentation:

          1. mbox support? For now, use any mbox-to-maildir converter.
 	    Google knows about several.

"I'm Feeling Lucky" button on Google came up with this:

http://perfectmaildir.home-dn.net/ "a 'Simple but Perfect' mbox to
Maildir converter"

Still, I'll incorporate mbox support in the next version anyway.

Thanks for the feedback!
