Re: Administrative Overheads Arising from UCE

Whether or not people take me seriously is uninteresting; however one
could hope for the content/message being slightly more important...

I didn't check MAPS/RBL or ORBS mostly because I don't beleive in
such centralized monsters but also because I feel they would hardly
be up to date and people would not make use of them anyway - if it's
impossible for a university to stop Mail Relay by 10 lines of .cf
code, why should one expect them to add tons of such code to go ask
MAPS/RBL or ORBS and do so for each message???

However, I've now spent some time with MAPS/RBL to look for spam hosts
and Mail Relays (some apologies to the folks that get exposed; if you
find yourself - or your friends - here go fix that Mail Relay).

Spam host                       IP                MAPS/RBL

This is a fairly complete list of Relay Hosts that showed up in mail
from people complaining - there is likeley to be more, both where
noone has complained or where the complaint didn't include Received.

I doubt MAPS/RBL or ORBS would have saved us.

QED,
