Hello All

This is not a complaint !!! (Just to let you know my situation)

My subscription is to my PRIVATE email address.
But if I post to lists I use my "anti SPAM" email address.
That uses a challenge/response method to stop SPAM.
(Therefore not compatible with subscription on lists)

This would also affect people using e.g. address@hidden

I personally think that the Savannah spam control is very good.
(I can only count 3 emails that got through in the 12 months I have
been subscribed and all in the last 9 days)
And these 3 have not been normal spam (in my view) as all 3 where
responses from virus scanners that have received a virus email from
this list.
(windows SOBIG virus uses FALSE REPLYTO address).

It would not surprise me if Savannah fixes this in the
next update of their spam control.

PS before I switched to address@hidden
I was address@hidden
(My private address is now different and available off the list)
I have had my new private email address for 6 months and not had
any spam directly to that address.

OK Just recieved the email from Jason
Can address@hidden be added to the "accepted posters filter" please

Many Thanks
