What ??? - only 60/day ;-)

Yesterday I was in Paris and have checked my Mailserves and it 
reported 18.000 Messages over 100 kBytes (the viruses) killed 
by 'mailfilter'. 

Now I am back in Strasbourg and checked it again...

Wow !!! - Now there are 27.000 Killed Messages from 78 mailboxes. 

I think, I will install an M$-Outlook filter witch sends a 
Message to the sender that I dont like to be in his/her Adressbook. 

PM's from Outlook-Users are not welcome same for Cc: because I am 
on the List.

Yea, I think, I will break some headers too... 

... and if someone like to send me a message, they can do it with my 
firstname point familyname at ISP or linux4 firstname at ISP.
