Hate to be a discordant voice, but I have found it crashes 'way too often,
and doesn't coexist at all well with my McAfee VirusScan.  Guess I'm back
to scanning for spam the old way, which is too bad, because I would love to
have sent back a spurious bounce message to each and every one.  On the
other hand, since the return addresses of most spam are faked anyhow, that
probably doesn't matter.
