Hmmm -- are you saying that one dedicated machine functions only
as a mailserver? Or, perhaps, that you have one of those arrangements I
can't think of the name of, where only one machine is exposed to the Net,
and all the others do all their connections (not just mail) through it?

Well, I look like being stuck with Comcast for Net access; they
and Gmail both boast loudly of their spamfighting prowess -- do I hear
that being something like "high-speed internet," which seems to be a
euphemism for glorified dialup?
