Oi! Where will I get my J-Pop and fansubbed animé from?

My God, have you *heard* French pop music!?!?!

As long-timers will know, I left the Internet in 2002 and returned last 
year. Thanks to friends with dial-up, I was able to pull some mail and 
such; but in a nutshell PINE fell over in early 2004 and the POP3 server 
crashed in late 2004. The last I had it running, I had 115,000 messages 
with a mailfile in gigabytes. It was at this point I said to close down 
my domain's mail server. And it is still down now - and given I have a 
fairly spam-free life on Yahoo!, I'm in no hurry to resurrect it.

Isn't there something common you can use to filter the mail with? Like 
"Mail delivery failure notification" in the subject, or somesuch?
