Thanks for pointing me at bug 243329, Josselin. Now I know that a) I am not alone; b) where to file this. And perhaps another user searching the debian lists for the same problem will benefit, so a reply to the newsgroup is be good thing.

As for the mail server at aci.on.ca - they have a lot of anti-spam measures in effect. Probably your ISP is on their blacklist because another user at your ISP is infected with a bot which is spamming through your ISP's mailserver; or because your mailserver allows forwarding.

In my email account at work (another ISP) I get about 200 spams per day. My personal account at aci.on.ca gets one or two. It's a mixed blessing because sometimes good emails do get bounced. On the whole I support aci.on.ca's efforts. The other ISP's just don't seem to care about spam. If more did, we wouldn't have a spam epidemic.
