Moderate postings to <groupname>-email@example.com to stop spam
There is a seemingly increasing level of spam being directed to moderators via postings to <groupname>-firstname.lastname@example.org. There is currently no way to stop this being sent straight to the owner/moderators mailbox. This will become unacceptable to the volunteer group administrators if it increses furrther.May I request that such postingsare treated as moderated messages, even if this involves a slight delat to legitimate emails. The alternative will be a lot of closed groups as we get fed up with filtering in out private inboxes.
This has be used in one case by a disgruntled user! .....but although he is banned these messages get through to the moderators.
