I use a heuristic mail filtering program call 'popfile' - which is
available free on the internet at

This program intelligently identifies 'types' of mail and files them
accordingly in your mail reader uses folders. Perhaps the computer that
distributes the rpml messages could run this program which would very
effectively eliminate spam from the stream.


On rpml since 1997

Jeez -

If Paul Bates posts, it must be bad! I guess I'll even have to put in my
$.02. Though I seldom post, I've been a "lurker" on the list for many
years. There's no doubt that Hannu and the list have been indisposable
resources to our community, and though the spam is a pain in the neck, I
plan on hangin' in there with the RPML. Please, no offense, Doug, but I
agree that we should be hosted by a non-commercial site to minimize
partiality of management. Hannu, I know you're a busy person - how about
recruiting some other folks to help with the spam issue (don't look at
me, though - I don't know anything about it!). I know we've been through
this before, and maybe it's necessary to "thin the herd" every once in a
while, though I hate to see the loss of networking and strength in
numbers. I'll be sticking around if for nothing else than to see if Paul
lives up to his promise to "become a much more active member of the RPML

Hanna/all -

I also have been a subscriber for many years, and due to my company's
e-mail policies, I have not been able to post to the list very often. I
use this list as a significant resource as I follow the RP industry. I
have received a tremendous amount of knowledge from those who post to
this list. I also have been saddened by the amount of SPAM that is
passed on to me by this list, and the anti-SPAM messages contribute far
too much to the problem. If there is a way to reduce the SPAM, that
would be great, and if SPAM does sneak in, can we all just hit the
delete key?

I now promise to post to this list and become a much more active member
of the RPML community... as along as everyone else promises to just
