Mail system, there is a "[at]yahoo.com" address within the message or

It looks as though Yahoo! has changed their tune a bit... every spam I submitted to them in the past, even if it contained a Yahoo! email address, came back with their boilerplate "The spam in question does not appear to have originated from or traveled through the Yahoo! mail system." message.

Of course, we're using SBC/Yahoo! as our ISP, so ALL the messages to us travel through the Yahoo! mail system, but apparently they weren't smart enough to figure that out.

At least now, they're shutting off email addresses that are advertised in spam. It's about time.

The response from the big companies has been inconsistent, partially dependent on what email addresses (including non-US addresses) are used for reporting the spammer address. The response you mention is common.

I have noticed a significan reduction in the spam I used to get at my yahoo address since I started reporting...got down from 200 or more a day to 1-4...I never gave that address to anyone, never made it public....So in effect it worked like a spamtrap...
