And it did -- which is why I have added a special note in my .signature file  
(and why I didn't dump rejected messages straight into /dev/null/ from the 
beginning; the first rule of procmail seems to be, you probably missed 
something).  A spammer probably isn't going to go to that sort of trouble.

But if you can think of anything else I can pick up on that will improve the 
reliability of identifying legitimate off-list mail, I'm open to suggestions.


Note:  Originating address only accepts e-mail from list!  If replying off-
list, change address to asterisk1list at earthshod dot co dot uk .
