I wondered if that might be the explanation, but I delete stuff every 3
minutes, and when I was away for a week recently I only accumulated about
7MB of junk out of the 10 allocated to me.  It seems to me the chance of
filling 10MB in 3mins is not large.

I think it's probably due to poorly designed ISP filtering.  I've
complained but I'm not sure I'm gettiing through to them - I was asked to
send them copies of the bounces, which of course I'm not getting - it's
the people mailing me that get them - they don't seem to understand that
