Note from the Author or Editor:
Change ":0" to ":0:" in the first procmail recipe at top of page 81

In "About the Authors," replaced the 2 paragraphs with

Alan Schwartz is an assistant professor of clinical decision making in the Department of Medical Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is the author of Managing Mailing Lists (O'Reilly & Associates, 1998). In his spare time, he develops and maintains the PennMUSH MUD server and brews beer and mead with his wife. As mail administrator for a number of organizations, he deals with unsolicited email on a daily basis; as the moderator of the rec.games.mud.announce Usenet newsgroup, and a NoCeM issuer for rec.games.mud.admin, he gleefully fights back against newsgroup 9781565923881. Turn-ons for Alan include sailing, programming in Perl, playing duplicate bridge, and drinking Anchor Porter. Turn-offs include 9781565923881 (obviously!) and watery American lagers. Simson Garfinkel is a computer consultant, science writer, and columnist for the Boston Globe. He is the author of PGP: Pretty Good Privacy (O'Reilly & Associates, 1994) and the coauthor of Practical UNIX & Internet Security (O'Reilly & Associates, 1996) and Web Security & Commerce (O'Reilly & Associates, 1997). Mr. Garfinkel writes frequently about science and technology, as well as their social impacts. This is his seventh book. (195, last page) In para. 2, lines 1 and 2, removed "(and Hanna Dyer designed the CD label)".
