It looks like the servers are bouncing some of them just for me, even.

I'm on most lists & also seen much spam lately. Changing Mailman list configs to only allowing postings from subscribed addresses could dump nearly all spam; (I'm a Mailman admin elsewhere ). But @freebsd.org has prefered open lists for near all lists. Best only for the initial fresh- after- install- questions@, IMO. Mailman can also input from a spam phrases block list, though I haven't much used that on lists I run, as subscriber only block near all. Normaly the @freebsd.org anti spam mechanisms protect both lists & non lists. List back end responses to eg isp@ & hackers@ have recently migrated from Mailman to Mlmmj, I guess that shouldn't directly affect spam protection ? but it'd be interesting to know what advantage the migration might bring @freebsd.org ? ( Though I couldn't migrate most lists I run from Mailman to Mlmmj, as many lists I run are mostly non techs, incompetent with anything beyond click & fumble. Command lines of Majordomo & Mlmmj impossible for them ) Cheers, -- Julian Stacey http://berklix.com/jhs/ http://stolenvotes.uk http://www.berklix.org/~jhs/mail/sorbs/ Unreliable spam black list extorter.
