Right now I have something setup on my personal mailbox where
email coming in from a specific address gets bounced (because they can't
get their mailer to quit sending the same message over and over again) and

mail-files or my INBOX.
I'm sure there would be some problems somewhere that someone can
think of, which is why I'm asking. Is this a feasable solution to filter
out unwanted crap?
