Ok, I guess I don't post many questions to the list, and I just got the AOL
BR mail in response to my post above.
I can see how annoying that is, but at least my spam trap picked it up.
What annoyed me the other day was I sent a legitamate email to someone on
AOL, and they rejected it with the reason that the person who sent it (me)
was a reporter of SPAM via SPAMCOP 

(Now waiting for the next AOL BR mail)
