RE: [NTO] Spam filtering
It sounds to me like it's a "dirty-word" filter. Regardless of what it
is, it should NOT be boucing directly to you (the proper bounce should
go to Yahoogroups & they'll log it)
Now for spam reduction: I like SpamBayes. It plugs directly into Outlook
2000 or XP so I don't have some other mail proxy running. It requires a
lot of training so it's not 100% yet but it's getting there.
