Re: Port 25 filters - how many here deploy them bidirectionally?

We really don't know what to make of it.

Either the spammers have modified their code so that they don't waste their time trying to spew from blocked machines, or we've been very lucky of late.

I hope it's the former, but suspect it's the latter.

Intersting. with the spam on the increase, do you think spammers are
'ignoring' your customer base? or is there other factors involved ?
