Hi folks:

Here's a good one; my TMDA challenge is being used as proof that I spam!

I got the following virus-accompanied message sent to a TMDA-protected account:

And apparently webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx was not amused, because he reported me to spamcop and now I'm on their list! With the TMDA challenge as proof of my spamming!!

*sigh*... Oh well, at least it finally got me off my butt as far as installing qmailqueue, qmail-filter and deny-filenames is concerned.
