There is supposed to be a email-2.3.0.README in there. It's in the patch, so I'll have to see why it's not making it in the binary

I will fix all of these tonight, and post a 2.3.0-2.  Thanks for the feedback and the +1 vote.

BTW, I installed nail last night and spent at least two hours trying to get it to work. I encountered several problems, the largest
