Hi, Tony.  As one of the guilty back then, I don't recall it being a
matter of clobbering copyright but a matter of adding explicit license
terms on the modifications that Sendmail, Inc. people made (including
myself at the time).  You certainly still have copyright claims on that
code.

Max, we found that code immensely useful a decade ago.  I'm glad it's
still in use.
