The two complaints I have are essentially, "Mail is hard enough to
read, why do I need to see this extra junk in the subject heading?"
I think I concur.
It should be noted that all three of us have spam-filtering already
implemented in one form or another, so this effort is seen as redundant
(and frankly, more spam). My current filtering is done through the
Apple Mail app and through procmail.
I understand why CIT is implementing it and I realize that the effort
is useful. I just wish it were not mandatory.
