SAUCE (Software Against Unsolicited Commercial Email) sits between
the Internet and your existing Mail Transfer Agent (e.g. Exim).  It
does a number of checks on incoming mail, including being able to
blacklist senders and their sites automatically when they mail
special `spam bait' addresses.
This is a BETA version and is best used by mail experts only.
