> Hi;
>     We wrote a small java application to clean out bad e-mail entries

> Where this might be useful for instance is when;
>     Someone sends bulkmail out from the server, and then you hit a "good 
> times" autoresponder. It sends out oh, typically lets say 5000 e-mails 
> about 5mb each with viruses in them. Of course, they begin to bounce, 
> and each autoresponder bounce message triggers another 5000 e-mail 
> avalanche. Recognizing this "out of character" condition, an 
> adminstrator can trigger this function to purge all e-mails to / from a 
> specifc address. I've seen this happen at least three times in the last 
> year.
