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.

Kind Regards,
