[SpamCop-List] real addy in subject of porn spam
Mon, 3 Sep 2001 17:24:08 +0100
I would send my abuse complaint to abuse (with full headers and a
copy of the spam). No need to munge the addresses in the subject and body
UNLESS you intend to file your report through SpamCop, which will post your
report on the internet after munging only the addresses in the headers.
Level3 will not be making your report available to spammers.
