Dear postmaster at ixc.ixc.net,
You did not reply to my previous inquiry about this problem, and today I have
received another obnoxious email message which was sent to a mailing list,
using your site's facilities. The name has changed, from "Samantha Jerrings"
to "Janet Dove" but the essence is the same, a widely distributed attempt to
gain new customers for a magazine subscription service.
Enclosed are the headers from this latest message, plus an excerpt containing
the company address which might yield more information. According to the first
Received: header, it originated from pm1-62.ixc.net [184.108.40.206] and was
sent through cornell.edu from there, on to the header-people mailing list.
However, the Message-id implicates a host [220.127.116.11] (which corresponds
to the hostname ppp34.ingress.com).
As I said, this is an ongoing problem involving abuse of the Net via your
ixc.net facilities. What are you going to do about this problem?
