Re: open relays at Earthlink

  • From: Adam D. McKenna

I received this spam this morning.  As of 6:41am, it wasn't fixed.  I didn't
test it *right* before I sent the e-mail, but I really didn't have a reason
to assume it had been fixed between 6:40 and 10am (when I sent my original
post..), considering that I have been e-mailing them for over a week now and
nothing has been done.

They must have fixed it (or you didn't test it). Lets not be too hasty.
