OK, now have the line

in my dcc_conf file, when I start I get this message though:

unrecognized checksum type in "-g not-IP"

(am running V 1.1.19 if it makes a difference), with this is dccm just fails
(presumable because it doesn't recongnise the argument)

I got rid of -g and changed the LOG_AT, it does indeed that the message is
whitelisted on IP which is shown as localhost. A bit of rechecking showed that
although I had got rid of the whitelist for 'localhost' in whiteclnt I 
hadn't for whitecommon. With that changed I'm getting the DCC headers in 
the mail.

Cheers for the pointers - any ideas why -g ain't playing?
