swiss-list-admin: spam-tester installed

Dear Swiss-list subscribers,

lately the amount of spam and virus messages sent to the different swiss-list
addresses has become larger than the number of real messages. Therefore,
I've installed a spam tester called spam-assassin (http://spamassassin.org/)
that will check every message sent to one of the lists and refuse messages
that fail the spam test. Refused messages will include a short explanation
of the problem and what to do get the message posted anyway (sometimes
spam-assassin makes errors).

I've used spam-assassin to filter my own mails and only got one or two false
positives during the last 6 month, so chances are rather small that your email
bounces because of this. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
