Hi peeps, Yesterday this mailserver processed 8,050 emails, and rejected 7,289 as obvious spam before filtering (bogus sender/recipient, known spam source, etc.). Of those that passed the sanity checks, 223 were found to be spam.. so over 93% of the email the server gets is spam. Even with the multiple layers of filtering on the server too much is getting through, and I don't want to be responsible for redistributing this over the mailing list, so something is going to have to change. So my options are, as I see it: 1. Go to member only posting, but approve nonmember posts... not keen on that one as I don't want a manual solution. 2. Go to member only posting, and bounce nonmember posts... this will stop people posting and defeats the point of a support list IMO. 3. Kill the email list entirely and rely on the newsgroups - currently my preferred solution. Any others that anyone can think of? Shooting spammers in the head is an attractive option but illegal in most countries... Tony
