The Alan Sondheim Mail Archive

January 31, 2004

I've had to change my procmail/spamassassin filtering from saving spam in
a file to send it to /dev/null (the metaphysics of this amazes me) - the
auto-delete bin as far as I'm concerned. So if you send me something and
don't hear back, please send back with a different heading - or at least
inform me that you haven't received a response.

I've had to do this because my spam had reached about 5 megabytes a day.
