And as this does not seem to be an abuse-issue it's not you call. ( remember that everything received by email might have been lost in transport :-), unless you answer there is nothing that can prove that you received it. ( of course you MUS does not return message notifications, but that is moot anyway since it does not prove that you actually got the mail) Just relay and ignore. Reacting abuse issues is another issue. The must be dealth with swift and with result. Termination is an effective way of dealing with abuse. > -- Peter Håkanson There's never money to do it right, but always money to do it again ... and again ... and again ... and again.
