Hmmm, that's not realy what I want. Who knows what other junk there may
be on the infected machine. I would like to block certain addresses
which I find sending us virusses regularly. They receive a message that
they have been blacklisted for my domain and need to contact the
administrator should they want to use that address again to send us mail
after they have cleaned the machine(s). It is basically to spare me some

Ideally I wanted fetchmail to delete the mail on the remote server of
the ISP hosting the POP boxes before it even gets to our local
mailserver but I did not find an option for that. Apparently it is
possible in Sendmail but I use Exim.
