  • Hint to commercial providers of such services: send subscribers a daily record of "quarantined" email, and give them the ability to look at the messages whenever they want; otherwise they'll forget about mailing lists they need to pre-approve. This is speaking from experience running my own mail filter.

    Or, require a three-week trial period, where all the email goes through, but tagged as if it were blocked.

    It took me a few weeks to weed all of my mailing lists out of the spam filter, because I'm too lazy to go through 20MB of messages to find all the lists. I think spam filters should always come with an email-lint that will pick out "good" addresses from the user's saved mail folder(s).

    (Hm, while it's at it, it could remind you to email Aunt Lucy who's been waiting for a reply for three weeks...)
