Turns out that Thomas Graf's Email was intercepted by the spam filter,
so I've tweaked the filter setup a bit - probably at the price of
sacrificing some of the filter's effectivity.
It unfortunately has become totally impractical to walk through the
hundreds of moderator emails every day due to the volume, so I need to
rely on people to report about such problem to postmaster@xxxxxxxxxxx
or me directly via email or irc.
As for resending messages, due to people doing stupid things such as
restoring their mail and news spools oss is keeping a non-expiring list
of message IDs. However only non-spam message IDs are being recorded.
