Subject: ADMIN: Efforts to stop spam


Ford Truck Enthusiasts receives about 20-50 spam e-mails per
day.  Fortunately, the list server rejects the postings.
Unfortunately, the rejected e-mails are bounced to the admin
e-mail address (ie, me).

At one point, FTE uses the mail-abuse.org and orbs.org
databases to thwart spam.  This practice was discontinued
because a small percentage of users were unable to send
e-mail to FTE because their ISP is listed in either the
mail-abuse and orbs databases.

There are many reasons for being in one of these databases:

1. ISP was submitted to Orbs for testing and was determined
  to allow SMTP relaying. ie, their system is wide open to
  allowing spammers to bounce mail off their server.
2. ISP was submitted to Orbs for testing and blocked testing.
  Usually, testing is blocked because the ISP knows their
  mail server is insecure and they do not or cannot fix the
  problem.  ***This is the primary reason for some of our
  users being unable to send us mail.***
3. ISP is a known, reported source of spam and was submitted
  to mail-abuse.
4. ISP is a known to allow dial-up users to spam.

Due to the amount of spam received, the mail-abuse and Orbs
lookups have been added back to our mail configuration.  If
your e-mail gets blocked by our server, either pressure your
ISP to fix the problem or switch to an ISP that takes spam
seriously.  Don't take the excuse from them that the Orbs
test isn't acceptable to them.  The only reason for not wanting
to be tested is fear of test failure.  The big boys (AOL,
Mindspring, Earthlink, etc.) aren't afraid of Orbs testing and
neither should the little providers.
