We've noticed the problem some Taxacom users are experiencing with their

servers are updated to respond to new spamming methods. The descriptive
characters and values that define "spam" versus "not-spam" are often not

by making adjustments in the format of the outbound Taxacom mail.  We
will continue to look into the experience with this on other Mailman
