open relays at Earthlink

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.

This probably means that Earthlink is renting uunet ports for their dialup
business. You can complain to abuse@uunet about spam originating from, but they will do nothing except forward
your complaint to someone else (the reseller). It can take anywhere
between 3 days and a week for them to stop a spammer. One has been
operating out of .nyc* for a couple of months now.

The uunet abuse staff doesn't enforce the uunet AUP unless uunet is
billing the user directly, so you might try emailing noc@uunet if the
spammer is online. Last time i looked, the uunet NOC was still acting
in a responsible manner.
