Interesting and inventive solution!  My compliments, Skip.  :)

But probably not necessary.  The code to kill "all" 'at' commands
was actually done several years ago because I needed it back then.
If Maiko wants it, I'll be glad to supply it to him.  With a little
syntactical revision it should drop into the JNOS doat() subfunction
just fine.

As for 'mbox aliases', you're on your own Bill, because I don't
personally use 'mbox aliases' and I don't have any code for it.  It
was one of those things I never picked up because I wasn't particularly
interested in it.  Sorry about that.
