Re: anti-spam package
And what about people that use fetchmail to grab mail from
their ISP? It delivers mail via the local SMTP server and
lets the local MDA deliver the mail. Changing /etc/hosts.allow
will not block spammers for fetchmail users either. I currently
still use procmail as my MDA, and I just have a giant .procmailrc
to try and > /dev/null all the sites that spam me. Better ideas
are welcomed, but I don't think adjusting hosts.allow is going to
do the job for me.
