hi ya

i dont mind putting in a few hours to either setup
sendmail w/ antispam or  exim w/ antispam filters 
to try to minimize these whacky spams ??

- i say content based filtering is too late..
	- you already received that spam


and usually, it is faster/more productive to hit the "delete"
key than it is to take "antispam" action or commentaries
	but if one gets 100 or 500 spams a day...
	and/or have 10 or 100 users.. one must filter the
	spam out asap...
