Nice. This is exactly what I am looking for, though it is worrysome that the
documentation says that external content filters are only suitable for
low-traffic sites. Rod: have you experimented with this yet? Has anyone

Honestly, I think the e-mail system is going to become unusable in the
not-too-distant future and we will all be forced by circumstances to switch
to a sender-pays-per-message system. Think how much less profitable
indiscriminate bulk mailing would be if the sender had to pay you one cent
for every message successfully delivered!
