Thanks. :) It's not quite that good, but that certainly is my goal.

This is an excellent idea, and one that I have considered already. But
I'm not at the moment ready to take on the risks involved in starting
my own full-time business - soon maybe, but not yet. In my free time
I'm building up a buisiness built around mail-related services,
starting with mailing lists (www.molar.is). This sort of email
sanitizing/filtering service would be part of the next step, when I
actually begin to provide services to companies.
One problem is that I'm not really interested in building a buisiness,
I'm interested in building software. So I encourage you and everyone
else to implement this very idea, get filthy rich, and send me
thank-you letters (and lots of dollars, of course) for my help.
