Recently there was a thread on this list about "was their cleaning tape
expired" or some such thing.
Just want to tell you, we have a 3576 (aka TS3310). We have an ethernet
cable in the back for diagnostics. This allows us a web interface, etc. I
actually use this quite a bit - for counting how many tapes I can fill it
up with it's a lot faster than the 5250 command. We've also put in all
the email routing stuff it needed to know.

This allowed me to get this email:
