What he said. I get SPAM from vendors at work due to others in our department signing us up for training classes. It's non-stop and the organization had to put in a massive spam filter that notifies us of potential spam and lets us decide to allow the sender or not.

NO!!! after a day or so of this, and several hundred, I scroll through the crap and recognize the addy's as having 'sent' some shit before....hour or two before, maybe a day or two before.....much less a repeat of the same addy maybe 2-6 times before in the same download.....
