[Mailman-Users] SPAM Control

Hi Kevin,

    I'm curious, how are you filtering spam - with a spam filtering rule 
that matches a particular header and holds the message?  If so, do you 
have lists configured to send notifications for held messages?  We found 
that this of course generates backscatter ("your message has been held" 
outbound emails to addresses which are forged or do not exist) - we are 
looking for other ways to (perhaps) forward emails matching a spam rule to 
the listname-owner address with a note somewhere about why the owners are 
receiving the message.

Thanks - Ivan.
