I wasn't receiving any emails on Monday due to a pop3 fault ... thought it was an issue with the network so paid no attention to it. Returned to work on Tuesday and contacted Vodafone about an unrelated email I had received at my alternate (yahoo) email account - while resolving that was told that my vodafone email address had been suspended due to the sending of 1000 spam emails ... my first thought was Wednesday Thursday Friday (lol) ... and then I thought if they could send me emails to my alternate account (which is where my billing goes) why couldn't they inform me about the spam issue ... glad to see that the spam wasn't necessarily my fault but seriously Vodafone - sort it out.

I am getting lots spam too. What's happening? I don't want to return to the bad old days of sorting through endless emails for errectile disfunction and phony degrees.

I did well. Only 3 spam this morning. Ironicially Spam is now identifying itself with unique email addresses (possibly compromised) To those who are reading this and not in the know, please delete the emails and don't open the attachements.

Can you elaborate on reporting to these services?
My understanding is that ERS is a subscription service. DNSBL doesn't seem to provide a link to report spam to. And SpamCop allows you to register but then bounce messages back with comments like:
SpamCop encountered errors while saving spam for processing: SpamCop could not find your spam message in this email:

More obfuscation from VF. As I mentioned in this thread last week, DNSBL specifically told me NOT to forward my spam to them when I did so having been instructed by Vodafone.
VF should be sorting this out themselves and not asking their customers to do their work for them by forwarding spam to third parties - who appear not to want it. Surely VF has enough information to be able to sort this out themselves; providing a safe and secure service is their core business afterall. What does the 'abuse team' referred to do all day?
