YOUR spam filtering.
Actually ... I have several email addresses, and my mail comes

It seems to be nearly 0% effective on the ieee address, which
someone else controls.

apply that rule about tagging dynamic ip that doesn't go
through a relay. It was 0% effective. 100% of what it tagged
was non-spam. 100% of the spam passed.
It was effective at tagging viruses, but on Linux they were not
a problem. It is easier and more effective to reject microsoft
