The spam tools mailing list

Updated July 27, 2002

The spamtools mailing list is dedicated to software tools that detect and process unsolicited bulk e-mail. The digest version of the list is called spamtools-digest.

Tools for any platform are of interest, although most user-level tools are written for Unix and for Windows, and most server-level tools are for Unix.

Please limit the discussions to tools; we all agree that spam is bad and that we wish that spammers would, at a minimum, go away, so those topics are NOT appropriate for this list. The list is unmoderated but persistently unruly members will be ejected.

Subscribing and unsubscribing

to This list is managed by majordomo2, so do not put your name after the list name. If you want to receive messages in a daily digest, also send (in the same message):
set spamtools digest
