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.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
