What recent news from the UK?

The implication is that while filtering for non-corporate-owned mail
servers may have the side effect of filtering a considerable amount of
malware and spam, you aren't really tackling malware and spam. As
mimedefang/SA/clamd will recognize beyond 95% of all spam and 100% of
all malware we receive, I do not really think that filtering rules that
attack phenomena which in spite of some statistic relation are
politically wholly independent of spam and malware are the right way to
go. I'd rather improve on spam detection than prohibit behaviour which
is per se legitimate - and which, going by recent news from the UK, may
even be desirable in some places.
