I recently saw an online filter system which had been linked (accidentally)
to the spellcheck dictionaries - the net result was that ANYTHING which was
not made-up words was rejected! A few moments work fixed the problem, but
had caused a few minutes utter panic.

I wonder if anyone else is suffering a rash of returned/refused mail
messages from cambourne.comm.coll.cornwall.sch.uk because I have now had
excess of 50 messages saying delivery of (an unknown)
e-mail has been
refused because of its nature! I think that includes the request to them
stop sending the refusal messages!
I guess that's the ultimate in anti-bullying, anti-spamming,
anti-communicative e-mail filters. I can't find a 'phone number to ring
them, either. Anyone able to help?
Best wishes, Derek Harding
