Here are the aliases for the list and digest. Each list has the same,
except of course the domainname, owner and email address are shown.

Thanks to Joe for help on this problem. The patch immediately cut out
messages which were bouncing back to me due to the use of invalid e-mail
addresses by the spammers.
I am however left with the problem that majordomo is still picking up on
spam messages and creating zero content messages in the digest folder.
the digest is created, it then shows these messages, albeit as blank.
. . .
Also, I have two lists. Only the list starting with the letter "s" is
picking up the blank messages. The list starting with the letter "v"
not pick up blank messages.
I have never seen this problem on any of the list servers I've run over
the years, and my majordomo addresses get more than their fair share of
Can you post the parts of your aliases file that pertain to the majordomo
lists? I suspect the issue has more to do with the configuration there
any issue with majordomo itself.
And a huge Thank You to Joe Jah for the posted patch - I've been looking
for something like that for a while.
