  Description     : an active spam killer

This program (Active Spam Killer, or ASK for short) takes an "Active"
approach in solving the spam problem: Everytime an email is received,
a message is sent back to the sender asking for confirmation. If that
sender does not confirm the message, it remains queued for delivery.
If the sender confirms, the message is delivered and removed from the
queue. The "confirmed" senders will be added to your "whitelist" and
will never be sent another confirmation. Messages from these emails
will always be delivered immediately . You can also specify an
"ignorelist" for emails that should be always ignored and
a "blacklist" that will cause a nastygram to be sent back to the
sender everytime an email is received. 

It's similar to tmda but some users think it's better.
