I'm not sure that I can make qmail do anything else. These are spams sent to non-existent addresses at my domain, being caught by .qmail-default. What I am going to do is clear out the Maildir daily instead of monthly, though. Collecting them has become a significant drain on disk space---the 400K spams are the result of about a month and a half of collection. -- Paul. w http://logicsquad.net/ h http://paul.hoadley.name/ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
