Hi Ken!

This is *very* interesting as it indeeds opens up some possibilities to
block nasty stuff.

Just wondering though, you have included what is in your ssjunk.txt file
but what do you have in the junksubs.txt file?

Also are the dots between the words really necessary, and will sendmail
treat the subjects and texts in the e-mails case insensitive?

Would be really great if you could send your and the
ssjunk.txt and junksubs.txt attached :)

Thanks for any info!
