Yes, it's be much easier to just filter smtp from 38/8.
I don't think anyone with customers could actually do it, though...
And Interramp customers would eventually figure out that just about
any SMTP server out there can be used as a reflector.
Better, I guess, to continue pressuring PSI to eliminate the scum.
But aren't Interramp customers now owned by Mindspring?
