abuse At Load.com Posted July 22, 2005 Share Posted July 22, 2005 AOL has a feature like this and it looks like hotmail / msn is working on something like this as a service to ISP's, ASP's . . . pretty much any one who is stuck with the un-enviable task of hosting other peoples e-mail In aol's scenario an attached copy of the message is sent back to the feedback address with recipient information stripped out. Allowing your abuse desk to take immediate, possibly automated, action to solve a problem you may not yet be aware of. In msft's current solution they give access to a web site where you can find the unique helo / mail from / connection ip etc in a list format for all of the distinct connections from the networks you you can prove you have a right to see, and they are currently working on something like this in a web services format for a bit more of an automated reporting solution. I can only imagine some of the larger isp's / asp's that have deal with spam cop would be willing to contribute for this type of service, I know we would be willing to if it made sense. I can only imagine it would promote more immediate action on behalf of large service providers that have enough problems staying ahead of inbound mail traffic much less keeping track of their "not always so legit" out bound mail traffic.
