Spam, spam, spam, spam
I sent this message to my anti-spam customers today!
Greetings to our anti-spam customers!
A few of our customers have expressed concern over the amount of spam that
is being delivered to your mailboxes. Alas, spam is back up to almost
incomprehensible numbers. Postini estimates 94% of all email is now spam.
Here is an interesting article about it:
What does this mean for you and your users? If we can block 99% of the junk
destined for you...Blocking SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM
Here is a goody.. Does anyone know of a way to extract the list of
blocked e-mail domains (about 2000) from a client's account (mine) so
can use to to create a block list at the GWIA?

I have finally found a use for SPAM.
Recently I have got into writing short stories (of a rather "not for here"
nature) and some of the names the mail is purportedly being sent from has
become a good source of character names.
Keep em coming I say.

There must be dozens of ways to stop spam in email, too bad there's no
way to stop snail mail and phone spam. The upcoming elections here in
Arizona have the usual candidates and we also have a whole bunch of
propositions on the ballot causing dozens of recorded messages left on
my answering machine and huge amounts of junk mail touting candidates
or ballot propositions (not to mention the non-stop TV and radio ads).
Unfortunately, nobody considers political candidates or groups
representing ballot propositions as spammers, I guess there's no way to

I'm getting strange emails which I don't understand why it sent.
The originator address is always different.
The body of the message is a variation of the same theme but again never the same:
"Good day, commander,
You are very good, thank you!
"Good day, commander,

Only the "You are very good, thank you!" line is consistent.
Most of the time the EHLO name is the reverse IP address.

I receive an email newsletter (intentionally) a couple of times a week. I have
the sender in my address book, but every time I get this newsletter, Thunderbird
thinks it is junk, even though I click the 'Not Junk' button every time. How can
I get Thunderbird to believe me that it is not junk once and for all?

Maybe. But the anti-spam community has probably already considered this and
discarded it because of the false-positives and extra bandwidth consumed,
