dannf pointed out that there is a patch for Mailman which causes it to send
messages to spamassassin to check for spam.  I've set it up on the box that
this mailing list is on.  Any spam that it detects will be saved for
moderator review, so normal messages that get caught accidentally will not
be discarded -- just delayed.

I've already sent a spam to the NCLUG list, and it seems to work great.

 Unix actually IS user friendly -- it's just very picky about whom it
 calls its friend.
