Package: dspam-webfrontend
Version: 3.10.1+dfsg-3~bpo60+1
Severity: wishlist

There is a list of ALL users as select html list. In 3.6.8 
version it was just text field and admin can type user to search. But what 
if we have a thousand of users, so it is loading as huge select list. I 
think it's not a very good idea to use big html select list for big amount of users. 
It makes this list unusable in case of  large amount of users. 

I suggest to add an option to configure it and have a possibility to use usual text field to select user.
