Hi Mark, Spamnix works somewhat like you describe. It tests the
message against a bunch of spam templates and leaves "Spamnix" in the
body so that Eudora filters then toss it into Trash.
When my son's server tricks are fully operative, the server will
simply refuse SMTP handshakes from "certain" originators.
(And what's this "N+" stuff ?:-)
