How much spam were you getting from SBC sources? How much are you now
getting from SBC sources? Last September I received an email from SBC
announcing that they intended to implement port 25 blocks on outbound
connections. Last December fellow SBC customers began bitching about not
being able to connect to there off-ISP SMTP servers. At that time I was not
blocked, but I started investigating my mail providers. By last January I
had converted to using port 587, or port 465. Two nights ago I ran a Telnet
check on one of those servers; port 25 is now blocked for me.
It has now been seven days since I have received a spam message through an
SBC open proxy; and, for the first time since October, or so, Comcast is
ahead of SBC for open proxy spam.
