"I have to admit that some of my anger with Spam is the number of robo calls I received during the recent election...I mean wow I started casting my votes against the ones that called...yep the candidates that called me more than 6 times all got a vote against them. Really it is all basically the same thing, people are using you and your resources to get ahead..."

"One of the things I like about Postfix is many options to deal with Spam. Using a combination of configuration options I have made huge inroads to meeting my goal of 0%. It was not really rocket science but more of making some additional effort to deal with several smaller issues. header checks is just one of the options available. One of the reasons that header checks can be so effective is that Postfix allows you to drop mail before you waste server resources on it. Yes...that is very important when you realize that between 70-95% of all mail you get is trashed. As a mail server administrator and as a person who must purchase the hardware for the server, that makes me frustrated because 70-95% of my costs are based on Spam."
