It seems like an increasing number of spam Mail Relay now uses hosts
in Spain (.es), most often Sun with native/naive sendmail. Using RIPE
whois-info doesn't seem to get through, at least there is no response.

If this list happens to contain .es ISPs it would be highly appreciated
if you spread the Do Not Relay info to customers (and competitors) by
whatever means have the best effect.

PS
    On at least one occasion I've seen spam with a forged but existing
    From first being Relayed through a .es site, after which the Sys-
    admin at the Relay complained about the innocent From sending spam.
    In fact that's as near to "enough" that you can ever get.

    I guess none of you ISPs will like the idea, but maybe there
    should be like a Sysadmin's Internet Drivers License required
    before a site is actually allowed to connect - some Netiquette,
    something about security, something about logs/alerts.
