Rulesets that expand on sendmail's anti-spam facilities

'SpamFilters' is a collection of rulesets that expand on sendmail's anti-spam facilities. These rulesets inspect the "To", "From", "Reply-To", "Received", "Subject", and SpamAssassin's "X-Spam-Status" email headers, and reject email based on their contents. It integrates into sendmail by way of the sendmail m4 build hierarchy, but can be added directly to sendmail's configuration file if needed.
