The online documentation is clear, however:

"The current apsfilter license requires you to send a postcard to
Andreas Klemm. You can get his snail-mail address by sending an e-mail
to apsfilter-snailmail@apsfilter.org, which you can do directly during
the SETUP process, or later (e.g. if sendmail is not available)."

All glory to the hypno-toad.
