Here's a case which I've seen happen, more than once:

I cater for company A, users get no spam.

"User"'s buddy in Company B with no antispam forwards a great offer for 
a US mortgage (for a Swiss citizen?  DUMBO!) and guess what happens, 
SURBL catches this message ....

what do you do?  whitelist the SURBL entry, whitelist DUMBO , ignore FP....

yes, I've chose to ignore FP, and I'm sure "User"'s boss would approve.....

but can an ISP do this easily? nope.....

what do others do?


PS: Nice to have WS back to normal - hands off that kernel Bill!
