Now well off topic ...

I believe other mail-filtering systems leave the control in the hands of the receiver, quarantining
mail until the user looks at a report and approves it.

The main gripe I had is that a "click here so that your mail won't be discarded as spam" mail
is exactly the kind of thing I have received from time to time (as I'm sure almost all of
us have) as spam!

Well one possible way for SpamArrest to handle it, is that when you enter an
"authorized" adress, you have the option of getting notification of an email
coming from the same domain. Either it could automatically authorize mails
from that domain, or send you a weekly/monthly report of mails being sent to
you coming from an authoriezd domain (obviously you wouldn't do this for
"" or yahoo, etc.)

just my 2 cents
