Why Trusted?

Recommended Posts

Hostname verified: dukecmimpo02.coxmail.com

Trusted site 68.99.120 received mail from 68.99.120.135

Then these SCUMBAGS don't accept reports (fools SpamCop reporting and SCBL)

Re: 68.99.120.135 (Administrator interested in intermediary handling of spam)

To: abuse[at]cox.net (refuses to accept this type of report)

Trusted means that someone has tested the relay site in question. The two major requirements are that it is not an open relay and that the server is not owned by a spammer.

A quick forum search returned the following:

It means when the loons at Cox net get a security problem (probably a compromised account) they flood the world with spam and never get to know about it until their CEO is deservedly arrested for sending porn to children (or whatever). Instead of not accepting they could get reports sent to a unique address

Getting a lot (flood) of porn spam sent to Hotmail which is relayed through Yahoo email servers (another that are non-responsive and do nothing. They do however get reports sent to "interested party"). There is something wrong

Frustration from reporting spam to Yahoo to subsequently have "nothing" happen is the exact reason I decided to set up my own email server: more control over what arrives in my inbox, including the option to reject unwanted mail during the SMTP dialogue.

Yahoo have been spamming possibly deliberately for years, they use legitimate smtp protocal.

Thing is the word spam disinfect what it really is and that flooding DOS attacking sending porn to minors/children phishing, virus attacks etc. I often include this in my spam report Yahoo deliberately ignore it.

One that takes the cake is trying to contact abuse#leaseweb.com about a porn site sent to children they send a response

The IP address/domain is hosted by Leaseweb Germany. You can contact

them at abuse[at]leaseweb.de

(which is uncontactable by me, going to try the German Government spam authorites)
