The urgent list you are referring to was for urgent virus notices, of which since inception there was only one use. I've considered this list not virus- or junkmail-specific. Maybe my mistake. It wasn't even specific to Declude Virus. The reason for the list was that there was a rash of new

I also agree it would have been nice to have a warning announcement about the Spam Header test being broken officially from Declude, more timely, and along with advice what to do in the interim. This is not the same Declude operation to me as in years past! FWIW, it was handled very similarly to

On another note... has anyone seen any sort of (cascading?) effect from the SpamHeaders glitch? There aren't any, designed effects. Specifically, all the SPAMHEADERS issue does is causes E-mails to fail the SPAMHEADERS test. That adds weight to the E-mail, and if any actions are performed on
