I have noticed that as soon as I post, there is an attempt to spam me
immediately upon my post. This happens on *every* post, within a fraction
of a second of posting, so it is not coincidental. This comes not from the
list group per se, but from some spammers who have attached themselves or
subscribed to the list, and run small scripts directing their spam upon a
post, or at least mine. These are taken from my SMTP logs.
Initially, it came from one source, mail-in3.tiscali.be:126.96.36.199,
and this has been going on for months.
Are you really getting spam from those? I just see connection attempts,
which is a common way for mail servers to *avoid* spam, by checking if
the mail was sent from a valid address. sourceforge does it too
Hi Anders, good question, and yes, regarding the above IP address. This
was a long time ago when I first posted, and have since blocked it, so do
not know currently. However, I refer you to spamcop for the 0/24 IP
addresses.., so for me, it is a safe bet to give them a 553 SMTP block.
The other IP addresses I listed, come from well known, long time spammers.
Thanks for the info regarding sourceforge, did not know that, other than I
do get their email via a STARTTLS connection, if my memory servers me
correctly, which is cool..
