There are various SpamAssassin rulesets out there, notable the 
bogus-anti-virus-warnings set, which mark up postings from me as spam. 
The biggest problem this causes is that people miss my announcements on 
the mailing list.

The easiest solution for all is for me to use a different "From:" 
address for my mailing list postings, so it doesn't hit these rules. 
They hit on the From: address containing the string "mailscanner" in any 
combination of upper and lower case.

They could simply come from jkf at Quite a few of the 
possibilities have mailscanner in the domain name, which reduces the 
scope somewhat. Others include,,,,,, I have a load of others too, but they all 
contain the string "mailscanner" in them somewhere.

Any suggestions? I'll register a new one if someone has any good ideas, 
which are related to mailscanner but don't actually contain mailscanner. 
The sounds like one of the better ones.

All thoughts and ideas are welcome.
