Can you forward [email protected] a copy of the spam relayed through
these machines? There's a good chance we're already aware of this party
(if not already actioned it). Neither machine should be an open relay,
although downstream customers occasionally do silly things. Also, has aggressive rate limiting, which should at
least frustrate the spammer who signs up for a throwaway account on a
Friday night with the intention of spamming all weekend.
