I used to measure the number of mails sent to abuse@ in <10 messages/month, and most of those are misdirected for westnet.net, or west.net, or westnet.com.au or . . . take your pick. As of now the bulk of all abuse mail is scomp noise. If anything I'm afraid I'm going to miss a real problem burried in the garbage. ========================================================== Chris Candreva -- chris@xxxxxxxxxxx -- (914) 967-7816 WestNet Internet Services of Westchester http://www.westnet.com/
