Michele,

The query is over the abuse details they have listed in both
the RIPE database and places like abuse.net, rather than phone
or postal details.

That aside, however, currently there is no policy or procedures
for RIPE to follow up on incorrect contact information in the
database.

Nevertheless I have to comment that I perceive it as perversion
to explicitely and voluntarily register or maintain an abuse-mailbox:
attribute that points to a disfunct mail delivery point...

I absolutely agree and should have made that more clear.

a rehashing of the discussion from last year is unlikely to be

So, one of the ideas I am having right now - as this attribute is
not mandatory and pretty modern - is to develop a slightly more
formal procedure to apply to this attribute.

That sounds like a good start.  If there is anything I can do to
help, please let me know.

Brian.
