More about that: at least 6 distinct email addresses for me end up in my
inbox, via 3 distinct POP3 accounts. The reduction is spam appears purely
due to my MSN dialup account, which, until recently, appeared to do nothing
to inhibit spam or viruses. Now it's doing a remarkably good job, and in
fact better than my other two accounts.
Those with Hotmail accounts may have noticed something similar over the past
couple months (I have a Hotmail account too, which I *don't* use with
spambayes, and the number of spam showing up there has dropped by more than
a factor 10 over the (approximately) last month).

That's appreciated! All email mixes are important to someone <wink>.
