Yes, it was kind of a mismash of non-rejecting and non-discarding...

Thanks! I think I have it now.  I switched to the following:

DCCM_ARGS="-a IGNORE -W -t CMN,50,50"

and I think I'm getting what I wanted - all messages are being accepted, but those at 
50 or above are picking up an X-DCC header with the keyword "bulk" in them.  I think I 
tried an "-a IGNORE -t CMN,50,50" earlier but missed the implication of not having a -W 
with it.  The -W apparently allows the IGNORE to apply even when the reject level on 
the -t is reached.  Without the -W, it looks like the IGNORE is overridden when the -t 
reject level is reached and messages are rejected...  I may be slow but....

Thanks again,
