Actually, my analysis of spam seems to indicate authentication of remote SMTP servers through a process similar to joining this list would remove 99+% of SPAM. i.e. the first email from a particular remote server that is received, requires the sender to take some action (respond with a password, click on a URL, etc.) before the mail gets through. One of these days I hope to write the procmail rules to do it (if I don't find someone that has done it already) -Ralph
