The SpamBouncer is a set of procmail instructions that search the headers and text of your incoming email to see if it meets one or more of a list of conditions for probable spam. It will then either tag the suspected spam and return it to your main incoming mailbox, tag the suspected spam, delete spam from known spam sources, and file suspected spam in a separate folder, send a simulated MAILER-DAEMON daemon "bounce", complain to the "upstream providers" of known spammers or spam sites/domains, etc.

Release Notes: Minor bugs were fixed, so now more spam can be caught. Regular houskeeping updates were done (free haven domains, small fry, etc.). Newly identified spammers were added. (Notably, the "Australian porn mafia" is now being caught.)
Release Notes: Updates were applied to virus filters, spam sources, spam haven domains, small fry, and other basic filters. SURBLCHECK was obsoleted in favor of other variables that allow the selection of a finer-grained usage policy for the SURBL blocklist. Minor bugs were fixed.
