To your local blacklisted hosts and also report them to the appropriate RBL?

Good question. In fact, I have added some of these addresses. But the spammer also uses Pacbell, AOL and other servers I can't block. Also, he is extremely active. I've already blocked nearly a hundred addresses from him, and he keeps coming up with through more! (Nor is he the only one.)

The mail may have a "FROM:" or "" but
you did not receive them from an obvious MCI server.

True, though I've found some of their servers are less than obvious. I go to some length to check servers before I block them, and I've *still* had customers complain because a legitimate sender can't get through. The culprit is often owned by one of the big networks. I don't think they're trying to help us....
