As we're on the subject of spam and mailing lists, I'd like to say a few things. Please select a provider with good spam filtering servers. If you want a good, free account with POP and webmail, I can recommend gmail.com. It's out of beta, and invitation is no longer necessary. Every time a spam filter misfires and decides to reject a mailing list message, the bounce goes back to the mailing list maintainer (that'd be me). One company in particular seems to have much crappier filters than anyone else: (drumroll please :) aol.com. They regularly block legitimate mail, so if you're an aol user, I'd recommend switching to another provider. If your provider blocks using RBL, you're also losing a lot of legitimate mail. RBLs that are used as part of a weighted filtering system, such as spamassassin, work well, as any spaminess is outweighed by the un-spaminess of the message content. RBLs that block absolutely regularly bounce legitimate stuff (like CBM-hackers). Spammers suck :/ -- ___ . . . . . + . . o _|___|_ + . + . + .
