My postfix' parameters to get rid of spam. They consist of

File containing regexps of forbidden things in a body (.exe attachments,
File containing spammer (and non-friends) email addresses.
Spamassin's local prefs file (scores etc).
Spamassassin's g-a-p-p-y t*e*x*t rules.
Warning: Postfix, starting with version 2.0.10, now recognizes MIME

So you may put most of my body_checks file in header_checks.

target). Mouse was jerky during the test ;-)
