Your saying 'the CodeWeavers forum feeds into the Wine mailing list'

It's not clear to me what is meant by this.
Is their forum using phpbb?
Are we sharing the same email transports sys, so that all the mail appears to originate from the same source?

If this is the case, then there is no point in me contacting the ISP admin, cos they could say that we ARE the source of spam.

Is this not something that should be worked out with php, with an implementation of anti-spam measures, such as those you have outlined?

But what I do know is that it's a bit of a bummer when WineHQ is considered such a source of spam, that its emails are simply blocked by certain ISP's.
