10/24   Is everybody getting spams purportedly from SBC that ask you to click
        at some ? The emails look legit enough and
        SBC does have my my soda email, but I explicitly opted out from any
        updates and the link address looks suspicious.
        \_ It's known as "phishing", is very common (especially to try to
           collect bank/login details for some official-looking page), and
           often uses some sort of browser exploit to make you think you're
           at a legit page (in this case obviously not.)  -John
        \_ <DEAD><DEAD> is a domain used by Digital Impact, which is a legit email
           marketing company that makes suspicious URIs
           \_ Don't you just hate it when companies do that?  I got a mail
              from ETRADE through <DEAD><DEAD> and thought it was fake, so I
              forwarded it to security@ and got a reply saying that it's
              real.  No matter.  I always go to their site directly and find
              where I need to go, even when they give me a link.
              \_ Since I explicitly opted out of everything when I signed up,
                 is SBC risking big fines by spamming me, or is there always
                 an escape clause for big companies?  -op
                 \_ What they usually do is add a new class of message that
                    you have to opt out of.  It is very unlikely you'll
                    successfully sue them.  -tom
                 \_ Maybe you should ask a trial lawyer

8/16    Why does my Y! mail account always full of unfiltered spam
        mails (and they're obviously spams)? Why can't they do
        a better job like Google mail? Why does Y! mail charge
        for exporting email? Google mail doesn't do that.

5/4     Is mail still down? I don't seem to be getting any and vermouth
        is unavailable. I saw a note saying it was down Sunday, but it's
        almost Tuesday now.
        \_ exim4 decided it wanted to just die. With the same config file and
        everything. Steven spent all weekend and a lot of yesterday migrating
        to a VM. A side effect is that NFS is now no longer on Keg, so crashy

11/3    It's here. Cell phone SMS spams. Anyone having problems? How do
        you deal with it? I'm paying 10 cents/message. Spammers
        need to die.
        \_ With Sprint the nice lady offered to block text messages, so I did
           \_ But that also blocks non-spam text messages from friends or
              alert from your server, etc. What they need to do is stop

10/29   Any tips on dealing with the usual nonsense-text-around-embedded-
        images spam?  I'm running postgrey + spamassassin, and it's catching
        about half of them...  -John
        \_ Are you running Razor2, Pyzor, and other services that contact
           a centralized spam repository to filter out even more spams?
           \_ No, I will be.  A gentleman and a scholar, thanks.  -John

5/22    I'm a new sysadm. I'm trying to collect as many spam mails as I
        can to build the ultimate sa-learn (spamassassin) database. I'd
        like to use this ultimate database to filter out ALL spams, once
        and for all, for all of my users. What's the best way to collect
        as many spam mails as possible? Thanks.
        \_ "once and for all"? so, would your users still be able to check

5/8     Help. After buying something from, I got a pop-up
        telling me that I got free $50 worth of coupons for Red
        Lobster, Chilis', and other restaurants. I figured that it's
        from Yahoo so it's probably trustworthy and answered a few
        simple questions (Are you a smoker? Do you have diabetes?
        Do you like sports? etc). Then a few questions turned into

4/27    I just started using spamassassin recently. And procmail. Yeah I'm
        behind the times. Anyway, some spams are just random dictionary
        words. Is it even useful to try to sa_learn those?

9/28    So the spam brigade finally found me on here in a way that
        annoys me greatly.  It was okay before, but now it sucks.
        I still use PINE. I am open to any suggestions to please
        let me I need to switch to something beside PINE?
        Spam Assassin?  What?   -maxmcc

6/22    I have weird problems with soda email today - cannot receive or send
        any emails. I know I'm slightly over quota but my grace period isn't
        here yet. I use pine.  Anyone have similar problems today? Thanks :)
        \_ Soda's load gets high and then sendmail sits back and just queues
           for a while until the load goes back below 10 or so.  That's
           probably the problem. - jvarga

4/26    X-Com UFO Defense is an awesome game.
        \_ is this 4/26/94?
           \_ nope, it's 4/27/10191
        \_ Seconded.  I reinstalled it on my laptop (there is a nice
           launcher to make it work under XP as well as a multiplayer
           add-on) to play on planes and places w/out wifi.  Let me know
