i think the proper thing is to "bounce" the spam .. and dont even
receive it in your "spam folders"
- if you bounce it, the sending servers get filled up
with their own spam
- 95% or more of the spams they try to send just bounces
( the balance of spam just needs filter tweeking, no time for it
( too bad sendmail creates a log of it bouncing ...
( but oh well, small price to pay
if you receive the spam in your inbox, its now a confirmed/valid email
addy and they will add you to other "known-to-be-good" spam lists
-- ie.. put your spam filters on the incoming MTA servers
