Sorry about the long delays in responding -- my wife has been very ill.

When I review the messages through the web interface, they're tagged as spam, 
and their headers are listed as having the correct tag.

There must be some exploit, since I checked my email this morning and *all*

Thanks for the help, I'll let you all know if this takes care of it.
