We have locally collected good experience the last few weeks
using procmail-spam filtering, inclduing spamassassin to the
The last two spams that went past the majordomo filters (the
"traditional ones I've been using) through to R-devel both were not
delivered to me, be but caught by the filters.
I have now collected a bit more of a week experience using the
new scheme also for R-core (and ESS-core) and few other larger
lists but with *much* lower volume successfully.
Also, all the R-SIG-* and the bioconductor lists are handled by
the new scheme.
This also entails that their web interface (including archives)
can now be advertized as much as you want, since I hope the new
spam protection will suffice (and be tweaked to become better, too).
Have a look at the Web interface at
As indicated a few days ago, I want to convert all the remaining
R lists ASAP -- but carefully.
I plan to do R-devel quite a bit before R-help (and R-announce),
partly because the list is quite a bit smaller (and has no
"gateway" as the R-announce -> R-help one).
I'll send another e-mail here, before the (visible) action
