Maintenance Extension: Some Cleaning Up

This update is to clean up the look of this Extension and bring it into line with the current MainWP design standards. 404 Email Alerts We Removed 404 Error Email alerts. Support was receiving too many complaints about the number of emails sent without resolving the 404 problem. So we turned this off for new users. If this is a feature you need, I recommend a plugin dedicated to the problem, such as 404 to 301. If you had the feature turned on before this release, you still have it available, but I would recommend also using a dedicated plugin.
