Spam Filters (Continued)

I just found out that there is a fix to the Postini problem i wrote about this morning. I can program my firewall so that it doesn’t let any email through that doesn’t come from Postini. This is good news for Postini and any other “pass-through” spam filters. It’s a bit of a problem if Postini ever goes down, but its better than getting all the spam that’s figured how to route around Postini.

I still think it shows the lengths that spammers will go to in order to get their bogus mail through.
