Re: Paul Vixie did not spam you (this is an automated response)

  • From: Robert Bowman
  • Date: Thu Mar 06 16:16:30 1997

Financial Connection has been a lovely pest for several years now.  
Exodus had the pleasure of having this customer connected to us in 
Seattle until we realized the company's illegal behavior and terminated
their service.

If anyone would like more information on how to contact this person
or the history of massive spamming done by Financial Connection,
please direct an email to myself.
