I believe you will find that a lot of legitimate posts in your spool
from users @xx.shawcable.net since shaw is one of the bigger cable

I agree!  Maybe a filter or two on one of the 'Posting-Host' type headers
would be better.

The following filter will work:

pattern = ^From:.*shawcable.net
action = kill

When did that change?  I thought the syntax for that was just a single line
in /etc/leafnode/filters:


You are correct...all my other filters follow this syntax
