This will send sysop a copy and hand 'areaqueue' the incoming message
which puts it in the areafix spool. Later, cron will run to
read the spooled message. You can manually put a very simple message in
the areafix spool for testing purposes. I think From:, Subject:, and a
command following a blank line are all that is needed. Run
by hand to test it, check the log file and the spool to make sure the
message was deleted. Go and survey the results of the newsfeeds file.
