  Except that UofToronto hasn't done much work with Zmailer for several 
years (they still use it though).  Others including Eric Allman (principle 
author of Sendmail) have done work with it.  The primary developer right now 
is Matti Aarnio, and his version is on ftp.funet.fi in /pub/unix/mail/zmailer
