Hi there,

I just wanted to check that I have configured the spam-splitting stuff
in Gnus correctly. Here is what I have in my initialization file:

|    ;;Spam-filtering
|     (setq spam-use-blacklist t)
|     (setq spam-use-whitelist t)
|     (require 'spam)
|     (spam-initialize)
|     (setq nnmail-split-fancy '(|
|      (: spam-split) ;If sender is recognized in News/spam/blacklist, send to 
"spam" group 
|       "mail.misc")) ;Else, send to mail.misc

I also have the post-processing variables for spam-blacklist set for the
mail.misc group itself. However, in my blacklist, I entered:


... with the intention of blocking all mail sent from the
domain, excepting the addresses I specifically included in my
whitelist. The thing is, I am still getting spam email from
addresses. Is my mail being split at all, or am I merely generating a
blacklist file that Gnus is not really taking any notice of? I must
admit, that I find the whole splitting/groups thing very confusing.
