Skip, a probe message is a test smtp stream that's sent to an ip address by 
someone who's looking to see if an smtp server is running there.  If it 
appears that there is, the spammer will try to relay a spam through it.  If 
that works, then watch out... the floodgates will open.  Neale's spampot idea 
is very kewl!  - TimS
