Is it possible to put a spam filter in the loop? Something like:
Forum postings ---------+
mail from mail list-----+
forum web server <------+ v
mail list <-------------+ silently deleted
There has to be a central switch which sees all incoming messages or
forum posts couldn't appear on the mail list and vice versa. It should
be possible to add in a spam filter at this point, but it would be nice
for somebody who understands the system to confirm that.
