I get sourceware ezmlm bounce warnings, when my domain mail forwarder bounces
mail with malware, and I don't see most of the spam, as my personal ISP account
filter is configured to dump spam instead of flagging it.
I don't see a few announce posts, as some appear to get dumped by my ISP as
spam, and my mail client puts some other posts into my Junk folder.
