[Mimedefang] A rose by any other name... Renaming MIMEDefang. What's your idea for a name?

I do like "oyster" but I think MIMEDefang mostly performs classification 
and modification and any filtering seems to be secondary. I do filtering 
with procmail. I also think the current name is less than clear about 
what it does unless one is a real geek -- and even then...

So here are some names I have been thinking about.




Spam Defender

Spamalot -- sorry, I couldn't help myself.

Spam Chaser


Mail Defender


I could go on, but I will refrain.
