C2H5OH Posted July 13, 2007 Share Posted July 13, 2007 Here follows my very naive suggestion; apologies if it's been done to death before. I may be unique, but I doubt it, in that presently I do not expect to receive real and wanted email from anywhere in Russia or China. I would happily risk losing an important message in exchange for my UK ISP rejecting all incoming emails from IP addresses in either those countries' address space. As well as stopping the present waves of spam, this would also curtail the similar waste of bandwidth being expended in handling non-delivery reports from Russian ISPs who blindly accept forged "From" headers. There are of course international reciprocal agreements in place which may result in (say) China retaliating by blocking all emails originating from my ISP, but I've already bought my Russian bride and cheap copy of Adobe Acrobat ;-) If I do need to correspond with someone in Russia I'd suggest they sign up for a Hotmail account. OK, I'm running for cover now... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
