I awoke this morning to 350+ such messages in my unsure mailbox. All but a
couple were bounces, like you said, for email addresses I didn't know. I
scanned a few to see what they were, trained on a few, then modified an
Emacs macro I use for bulk deletion of this sort of stuff. Having it sniff
for "wipe out your credit card debt" and "yahoo.co.jp.webhosting_hotpicks"
seemed to catch all of them.

I don't know. As far as I know that hasn't happened to mail.mojam.com.
Paul> b) What can I do about it in any case?
Besides train on enough of them so they are reliably caught as spam, I
suspect there's little you can do.
