 We get caught occasionally, and we all receive spam;
sorry for the last one (on R-help).  Of course, there will never be a 100%
sure prevention... 

Question is what should happen when mail from R-help to an adressee 
is refused with the following message : At least I won't be able to easily send
e-mail to them {and am not willing to use a non-easy way}....

    ... while talking to mail.kku.ac.th.:
    <<< 550 Your site is blocked due to previous spamming incidents

Maybe we (as user community) should try to make sure that our IT people
don't use such extreme anti spam measures....
