Here's something that would be most useful against spam: somewhere in the
pipeline check the message against the "razor" (**) spam database, and send
it to the trash if it matches.

I think it's possible to use the method described earlier by Barry (*) to
plug in this test, but I'm afraid I don't know how to code it, even as
simple as it looks.

(**) razor-check is at http://razor.sourceforge.net/razor-check.html
