I'm also on the IPCOP User list, there is no spam there and I think I know
why. They use [IPCOP] in every subject header and reject any mail which
hasn't got this subject header (I've seen no other mails there....)
Maybe you can simply fix this by adding [deb-user-XXX] in the lists and
simply sort out everything without it? The user just has to leave this in
the subject and the mails will still be delivered..
I think thats simple and reliable...
Just a thought,
