louisd Posted September 13, 2004 Share Posted September 13, 2004 The great MS beast has again show its incredible skill in botching even the simplest things. As you may have noticed MS has been trying to put a security and anti-spam foot forward since the release of XP SP2. They have put numerous pages up on fighting spam. Of course, the advice they give is most OK, but one piece is dead wrong. I have written to them and they say they will take my comments "in to consideration". I think we need an avalanche of notes to them so that they'll get this corrected before people get flooded with meaningless spam reports. That piece of advice is: "Forward spam to the spammer's Internet Service Provider (ISP). If you get unwanted mail, the sender's address will show the ISP name after the "at" ([at]) sign. Forward the headers (following the directions above) to the abuse alias at that ISP—for example, try abuse[at]<ISPname>.com."
