If we did that, all our international students from that part of the
world would not be able to email home. I've done something similar to
one of my email accts, but it can't be done for a whole email system.
there are too many people with business contacts in that part of the
world. The better thing to do is use a block list with most of the open
relays on it.
I've received a half dozen spams from AOL, but using those open servers
in China etc as relays. These spams have a couple thousand lines of a
binary which I believe is the klez worm. I've forwarded them to
abuse@AOL.com and tosemail1 but I have not received a single
acknowledgement of their receipt, and they keep on coming. I'm about to
print them out and mail them to their legal dep't with a warning that I
will report them to the FB! and Calif. AG for investigation.
My email address is whitelisted. *All* email sent to it
goes directly to the trash unless you put NOSPAM in the
