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.
