Your Coordinator speaking: Problem posting to the list

Dear Elmar, and other members of CCL...
 We (chemistry -x- at -x- are getting about 1000 spam messages a day
 (yes, a day). The only defense is to block sites which sent spam.
 If computers in your organization have been hacked by spammers and
 we got spam from them, they may be blocked from sending messages
 to CCL. If you are sending mail from some "free" e-mail address
 which is used by spammers, your mail will be rejected too.
 What can you do?
 1) Forward your message to my OSC address: jkl -x- at -x-
    and tell me to forward it to CCL...
 2) Use some other address/machine to send mail to CCL  (it need not be
    a machine from which you subscribed)
 At some point, when I have more experience with this, I will put the
 instructions on the Wen.
 In any case TELL ME ABOUT IT and send me the message to jkl -x- at -x-
 (not to FROM THE PROBLEM MACHINE, so I can remove the address
 > from the blacklilst, hoping that spammers got tired to use your machine
 and moved to someone's else.
 I am sorry... But there is no other practical way to protect CCL
 agains the flood of junk and filth. I do not have resources to have
 1000 messages inspected by qualified computational chemists. In fact,
 I do not have much resources, period... {:-(}.
 Still trying to sail the Internet...
