If I am reading this correctly. This does not log info about blocked
messages. I find that a lot of IP addresses in dynamic IP pools for
dialups are listed in various RBL databases. It's sort of like a
lottery if your ISP assigns you a dynamic IP. Some days no problem, and
some days everything you send is blocked as spam. Surprise, surprise,
one day when I checked what my spam filter was blocking, I found my
lover's emails--not really something I want blocked. Another day my
son's emails were spam. Personally, I prefer to dump spam into a folder
that I can check periodically to see what got blocked that shouldn't
