Klez (was RE: BLU server and spam)

In the mailing list I run here, I always set the Mailman size limit to 10KB, which has (knock on wood) stopped everything so far.

I am seeing several cases of Klez hitting our listservs. The listservs all 
reject them because our lists are generally port by subscriber only. 
mailman has some SPAM options also. I think that Klez is difficult because 
of its random subjects, random attachments, random from lines. You need to 
use some heuristics.
