all the samples I have are coming into this trap box from this kind of 
hosts I'd normally reject as well.
After ther last "setup.exe" type of fix Jules suggested, there are less 
messages beig skipped. The "" samples still aren't detected.
Have little hope we'll ever find the reasonf or this.

I'm for this as well. My test box has enough crappy traffic to put it 
thru its paces, and I can get more if required.
Who knows, it could also turn out to be an alternative for low traffic 
setups as I don't imagine postcat would scalet too well.
