"Anyone who has received an email in his or her lifetime has probably made use of Eric Allman's code at some time or the other.

"Allman is the father of sendmail, the first mail transport agent for UNIX systems. He will be in Australia later this month as one of the keynote speakers at the forthcoming Australian national Linux conference in Brisbane.
