Please don't top post. If you don't know what that means, Google for it.

There is not much that you can do about those morons. They are either
too lazy or stupid to exclude mailing lists from being notified by their
vacation program. I will let one through, but the second time I get a
notice like that from the same user, I create a rule and have Postfix
/dev/null that user's mail. End of problem. I could bounce the message;
however, that would only add backscatter into the mix. I could also
receive another notice from that user that could cause an endless loop.
