Strange EMail


Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this message, but I was unsure of which one was appropriate.

Can anyone tell me why I would have received the following message at my hotmail account? I know I could just delete it, but was just curious of what was going on. I don't run a mail server. Just use wemail.

The only reason a serious ISP or email administers would

be on such a list is that he do not yet know about it being

listed. Otherwise he would already have fixed the wrongfully

configured server. Or he terminated the contract with the

offending customer that put him on that list.

We have also tried to send this letter on the following

standardized addresses:







But very often administrators that don't know how to

configure a secure mailserver, don't know that they have

to implement these system addresses either.

And we feel that you will probably get better results

if you call or send this your self.

Most responses we get are about the spelling and

grammar from postmasters and administrators. They

are usually angry that we have made their customers

aware about their problems. This is kind of silly as the

Information given is easy to understand anyway, and

we could have sent the letter in correct Swedish instead.

But as our purpose in sending this is neither to make it

unreadable nor to make it offensive to anyone. Our

purpose is to inform about systems being misused or miss

configured so that the administrators gets a fair chance to

fix their servers.

So if you're an administrators please don't get angry

just fix your email servers and we will be happy to relay

your messages again. As a result your customers will be

happy and you will get less angry calls and letters making

you happy as well.

The few administrators, postmasters and ISP's that just

don't give a damn, will probably be noticed by their

customers anyway. As these letters will keep arriving

although they are probably just a very small part of the

end users problems.
