Sorry for this off topic post to this list...it appears that Scott was
unhappy with an automated email that my anti-spam software sent him
after he sent an email to me off list.
If anyone would like this software, you can get it at:
I've had great success with it, and *most* people don't mind the
confirmation email (which only get's if you've never confirmed your
existence). It accurately eliminates about 50-60 spam messages per day
from getting to my inbox. In a perfect world, it wouldn't be necessary.
