I'm going to have to look into this. I'll also brush up on my regexp syntax.

Quick question, when you mention "${VARNAME}" syntax, you don't actually 
mean including the quotes and curly brackets when referencing the 
variable, do you? e.g. $MSGSUBJECT and not "${MSGSUBJECT}".
Kind of stupid question but I figured I'd ask anyway.

Thanks for the help so far. :D
