The best option is to use whitelists, at server A whitelist anything
that is going to be dcc'ed at server B and vice versa. Also rejecting
bulk mail maybe not the best option because some lists could end up with
a high score. What I do is to deliver it to a seperatr mailbox and check
it every so often. Anything that was delivered to the "spam" box but is
not spam get's whitelisted and then I resend it out again to the
original destination.

See Ya, Sean
