Good to know the Debian people are talented at that. Hate to think about the
sea of spam though.
I am remembering that my provider uses Spamassassin, but the settings are
light and it has never filtered Debian list addresses that I've seen.
I use Spambouncer on procmail. List spam is getting a spam-score of 0.
pattern matching is on. So I might add some more aggressive block-list
services to get that score up.
