    Dunno mate. They do the strangest of things. Yesterday mine had Blaney
    blacklisted and highlighted in red into the bargain. Why on earth would
    it do a thing like that?

    Tried that, but if I do, it gets through to me anyway so doesn't act as a
    spamtrap, I think I have one of those emails where I can have anything
    infront of the @ :-/

    Would that not mean their servers actually check the domain extension of
    every email / message sent via them?
    Christ that seems a lot of work!

    You can, but why not reject everything that is not to a valid user?

    Revenge from Microsoft for not using their programmes, just get with the
    picture and use Outlook Express ;-)

    I have that too. But I know that the address I use here, i.e. [email protected]
    is not really valid and that anything received is probably spam.

    This, of course, doesn't work very well unless I want someone to
    e-mail me and forget to tell whoever to replace 'ukrm' with 'chris'.

    I started getting that. I used to use
    "hoodoowitch at nospamplease_hindcottage dot co dot uk" and obviously
    didn't want to use the full "proper" domain name. I think it's the
    newsserver started checking. (news.cis.dfn.de)

    So I changed my addy to mickey at disney. Works now.
