I agree -- no separate list.
Currently, I'm not interested in the Windows port, per se, and simply

is seeping in at a low level, especially about Win2K's DNS
implementation and interaction and will be useful when I *do* have a
need to get more interested in it :)

The whole goal of the Windows port of BIND is to make it work as much as
possible like the one on Unix. The bind for windows specific traffic in
this list is
less than 1%.  Why don't you just create a mail filter to dump the
windows bind
mail to NULL?
