My spamassassin load jumped a lot earlier this week, and I was assuming
it was the viruses.  Since I think they use addresses in the address
book, it's possible they were already in the database as OK, though
I would have thought the same would be true for you...

To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we
are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic
and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.
-Theodore Roosevelt, 26th US President (1858-1919)
