As the amount of spam grows as the internet grows bigger, using RBL's is
growing as well (to try and stop/slow the spam).
I am wondering what RBL's other ISP's/Companies in NZ Use?
There are quite a number (of RBL's) but a few can't be used as they still
have Xtra's Network in them (for "Sueing ORBS" they say), but the best I've
found so far has been http://relays.osirusoft.com.
Can anyone suggest a better one/comments/pitfalls on using RBL's for slowing

From RFC 2821
3.1 Session Initiation
The SMTP protocol allows a server to formally reject a transaction
while still allowing the initial connection as follows: a 554
response MAY be given in the initial connection opening message
instead of the 220.
I.e. if an RBL'd host connects to you, even before the HELO/EHLO, you
can tell them to go away
554 Transaction failed (go away evil spammer)

Anyone else had trouble with a very persistant spammer on
adsl148.dyn225.pacific.net.sg [18.104.22.168] or nearby ip addresses
belonging to the same ISP lately ?
Doing dictionary attacks, and attempting connections at the rate of several
hundred per minute, (up to 50 simultaneous connections at once) and still
attempting the same connection rate even after being firmly 550'ed.....not
funny at all.
Had the same thing happen a week ago from another adsl ip address belonging
to the same ISP and actually got what seemed like a positive response to
abuse@ saying that they had sorted out the problem, only for it to happen
again less than a week later from a slightly different ip address.
Just paying lip service to abuse emails, or do they have a high percentage
of scum like customers I wonder... :)
There is a streaming event in Wgtn tomorrow, covering a presentation by the
CEO of MTV-Europe, Brent Hansen. The stream will start with test pattern
and "curtain opener" stuff at around 4:30pm with the main event at 5:30pm
until around 8:00pm. Streams will be at 56k, 128k and 384kbps and will be
on WIX coming from l1.r2.co.nz (22.214.171.124)
While we don't expect the traffic volumes of the LOTR event last year, they
have managed to sell some tickets and maybe someone might watch (other than
us in the hall). So there appears to be some interest.
We also have advanced warning of a LOTR event in mid March. I'll advise as
soon as I get told something.
Has anyone on the list had experiance with setting up and/or
using imported Lucent Ascend Max 4048 56k RAS servers?
(E1 version of course).
I would like to know what peoples experiences are.

Am I just being unlucky, or are others seeing a big surge in 419 spam?
Not just from Nigeria (blocked), but from freemail servers all over the
place -- Europe, Asia, the US, South America etc.
419 spam accounts for the vast majority of UCE/UBE that I receive now.
I've been doing quite a bit of development in the VoIP word of late,
and one project I need to get going is a +64 ENUM reverse delegation for
Is anyone on this list working is this area, or have done work in
for a proactive approach try the nigerian fraud masterclass:
