those Microsoft Outlook (Express)/Internet Explorer users who give a sh**
about security || privacy really sucks. Specially Microsoft extremely sucks,
because they make such worms etc. possible. So I updated my mailfilter
(the regular expression catches nearly every 150 KB Message - but
false-positives are always possible)
Mailfilter deletes the messages at the pop3 server wihout downloading.
Currently I get 60 Messages / hour. Thank you Microsoft. Fortunetly I don't
have to pay the traffic, but unfortunetly I have a mailbox quota and have to
pay for the internet connection.
