Hey, I just found out this is not quite a hoax.  Instead of spaming the
addresses listed below, you should use a web browser (mosaic will do fine)
pointed to http://north.pole.org/.  Then you will be able to Feed Hungry
Kids, among other things.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

>>   santa at north.pole.org
>>   elves at north.pole.org
>>   rudolph at north.pole.org
>>Doesn't matter what the msg contains; it could be an empty msg, full of
