Indeed, a PC mailer app with rules could just about manage it on its
own. Set it so it logs on say, every hour, reads messages, filters,
and reposts them to the ppl on the list. ppl not on the list would
not get thru. Known spam domains such as savetrees could get a
'nothanks' if they tried to join.
The only downside I see is
- slower response times (1 hour updates)
- annoyed ISP of whoever was running the list.
