I noticed a very large upswing in spam after being subscribed here 
several days also. In fact it seems that the anti virus servers are 
sending back message denied signals also, which makes the traffic worse.

is there an admin on this list who is concerned with SPAM/Antivirus 
filtering. If so can they please have a look at this.

Of course this being a samba list, there must be more of you using 
outlook and m$ mail software which would explain it... So please patch 
patch your clients also....
