Re: getting viruses/spam after posting to this list

Hi Eliot,

after posting the first time with a newly created email the day after I 
received ~100 virus emails. I saw a least three different virus types.

Since I don't want to download all these mails (got a slow connection) I 
installed a filter at GMX (my email provider) which says 'Delete everything 
with 'multipart/mixed' or 'multipart/alternative' in the mail header. This is 
fine for me since I only want to receive Debian mailinglists on this account.

Grtz, Tim
