Thanks Randy,

I am in the outsourced spam filtering business so this all seems natural 
to me. And I look at it as win/win. I get useful data, the person 
letting me use their high numbered MX record gets some spam reduction. 
I'm not interested in the content of the message or anything other than 
catching the IP addresses of virus infected spam bots. That's all I want 
to do.
