Re: Base Pack S.R.L. and other Spamanado


Thanks for the info.

My ISP recommended this site:


When you submit your spam to SpamCop (via a form where you paste the 
spam), it
traces through the headers (via calls to nslookup, etc. for you techies),
gives you its findings, then waits for you to tell it to send a report to 
appropriate postmasters/sysadmins and the Spam Recycling Center (they have 
website at http://www.chooseyourmail.com/spamindex.cfm).

My apologies to the rest of the list if anyone was offended by my rants on
this topic.
