Florian, As I had stated in my earlier message, I had forwarded my Spam report to the following address [admin at uzpak.uz], but it came back with this error message: ------- A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed: ripeadmin at uzpak.uz SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<ripeadmin at uzpak.uz>: host mail.uzpak.uz [220.127.116.11]: 553 sorry, this recipient is not in my validrcptto list (#5.7.1) ------- As you may know, many networks show and use invalid, or even fake contact e-mail addresses in order to frustrate everyone, and the National PSDN "UZPAK" is no exception. On a daily basis, I report such abuse violations to Spamcop.net, http://www.spamcop.net/, and in many instances, the IP address either does not have an Abuse Reporting e-mail, or the e-mail addresses listed in the Whois directory is bogus. So, having a street address, a phone number, and even an invalid email address, does not change anything; it creates frustration and despair. One way to hold all networks accountable perhaps would be for the RIPE NCC to send an e-mail [once a year] to addresses in their Whois listing, thereby confirming and verifying their correctness and validity.
