Spammer Finder, and simply goes though your smtp-logs for that day (using a
cron job). and look for the RCPT=EAVAIL errors. (which are common signs of some one
trying to just mass spam your system looking for email account that will expect the mail.)
Then it records the IP address from which xmail said that message came from. After recording a
