With the exception of xemacs-announce, all other XEmacs mailing lists
are open to submissions from non-subscribers. Occasionally, an idiot
will send SPAM to them. Please check the headers very carefully
before complaining to tux.org
I would strongly suggest using a procmail recipe along the lines of
(using xemacs-beta as an example).
This has all filtered all SPAM sent to xemacs-beta for me. It drops
Bcc'ed mail, but it is very rude to send Bcc'ed mail to mailing lists
Followups to me or Jason or xemacs-beta, please.

open relay, and see if they can find out from their logs who actually sent

not blame TUX.ORG
when these lists get spammed?
