Ilgaz Posted March 31, 2005 Share Posted March 31, 2005 A funny thing potentially. Why? User got potentially lamely administered ISP mail host so he purchased mail service from spamcop. Scenario: 1) Lame ISP opens its relay worldwide during software update 2) User, not aware... As a good netizen using the spamcop service reports all spam he gets 3) Lame ISP gets into all the RBL lists you can imagine 4) Next day, poor user tries to send an importmant mail. He gets no response from recipient. Sends again, no response 5) It turns out poor user did evil to himself. He uses his "big" and lamely administered ISP's SMTP and he managed to put it in RBL worldwide. Sounds fiction? Think again. I am a guy who had to tweak very advanced, undocumented settings of Eudora client since my SMTP advertised the features it doesn't have. Thank god its not open relay..
