I am user "michelle.konzack" on the system and my account has the files

~/.courier-aliasses  (which is symlinked into /etc/courier/aliasses/ )

the "~/.courier-default" point to a special filter which  can  sort  out
which mails I want to see and are sorted into mailfolder /dev/null  ;-)

However, I have installed a traffic counter on this  filter  to  get  an
idea, how much spam I receive over the last 9y since  I  have  installed
the domain/server, this mean if  I  allow  all  users  to  do  this,  my
mailserver would accept arround 300-500 GByte of additional spam.

Removing "~/.courier-default" and use  instead  "~/.courier-<something>"
would be a better  solution  but  require  root  rights  (sudo?)  to  be
installed from a webinterface...

Thanks for your time
