This should really be treated as a warning message to mail administrators
everywhere. If you have not already implemented mail-relay blocking, you
should think seriously about adding it now.
When AT&T starts the filtering, those senders "hijacking" AT&T mail servers
will go searching for alterate servers; sort of like rats fleeing an
abandoned warehouse that is now being renovated.
