    The best way to go after spammers is to go after the site they are advertising, chances are any email address you actually find is going to be a redirection or a hack anyways.

    Yes, but it's quite time-consuming!
    And I try to understand more about the email header through a technical viewpoint.

    Spamcop (at http://www.spamcop.net ) is also an excellent place to go for email spam. Here's part of the output for the headers you posted, for instance:

    "nslookup 155.229.129.89" (getting name) [show] 155.229.129.89 = 89.dal-aus900.pool.eni.net
    "nslookup 89.dal-aus900.pool.eni.net" (checking ip) [show] ip = 155.229.129.89
    abuse.net 89.dal-aus900.pool.eni.net=abuse@eni.net

    Spamcop will process the spam and then send out abuse reports if you tell it to do so. You do have to register, but registration is free.

    This is actually a return (although fairly limited) for me to these fora. Thanks for the (re)welcome, though.

    Yeah. I knew that. You have almost as many posts as I do. Since I spend most of my time in the General forum, my post count doesn't go up much.

    Actually, the story I'm telling is that my post count got to 5,000, and I asked Wayne to reset it to zero.

    Well, now - we wouldn't want to have a core dump or anything, would we?

    I always report my spam messages to SpamCop, it usually has a good result. I've got 4 accounts closed, and another 6 that no action has been taken on yet.
