Hi Allen, I had a quick look .. but I don't think it will suit my needs. I don't really want to run an interactive gui for this, just a core script that runs all the time examining my pop account and removing all the obvious spam, and email addresses that have been blacklisted. The trouble with ADSL/cable is that being on the internet all the time, means you get spam all the time :( I'm not that optimistic that bouncing spam results in removal from any distribution lists ( all the emails are on cdrom from what I can tell ), and maybe just adds to traffic. If the return address is forged, does it then bounce back to me ?? -- Graham Chiu
