Yes, we are off topic, but this fact may be interesting for many people
reading this list. I receive more than 100 copies of this beast every day,
15MB total. Since my mailbox allows only 20MB, I have to clean it up (using
the great tool mailfilter) at least one time a day, otherwise I will become
unreachable very fast.

Is there a public server running mailfilter (or something similar) which
can do this cleanup on a regular basis, even when I am on holidays?
