I set up rules for thelist and the like that would automatically mark it as not spam, further training the filter. I get an amazing amount of spam to mattwarden.com addresses (mainly because it is a wildcard alias entry), and I would say that the catch rate was well above 99%. Of course, I haven't been using it since the "picture spam" with random text started gaining popularity. Not sure how well it handles that... -- Matt Warden Cleveland, OH, USA http://mattwarden.com This email proudly and graciously contributes to entropy.
