OK. Thanks for the information. I think I will get going on this because
it's just getting worse. I feel a sense of community and want to help fight
the odious stuff. To begin with, I think I'll look at RBL as you suggest.
I looked in the only links on the page I use for reporting spam but could
find no reference to RBL. How would I get started in that the use of RBL?
