I know that vger.rutgers.edu uses it and it seems a rather effective way of killing SPAM. At least the Linux kernel mailing list is reasonably SPAM-free. I know that using ORBS tends to cause anti-ORBS discussions to pop up every so often, but at least these are less annoying (some are even very funny) than SPAM. While we're discussion administrativa: is there a way to reduce the mailing list latency to a more bearable value than the approx 50 minutes we have currently? Mails get to baghira.han.de within a few seconds, but then need ages to be delivered. Could you have a look at where the bottleneck currently is (slow machine, suboptimal mailer configuration, link congestion, slow DNS server, ...)? =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Klaus Espenlaub <firstname.lastname@example.org> To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to email@example.com.
