[Mailman-Developers] Please Explain !!!
Thu, 19 Jul 2001 13:53:20 -0400
I did some checking on this issue.
It looks like graffiti.net is a free web based email provider.
They also allow forwarding.
So I am guessing from the headers that someone is pissed off at you.
1. setup a free web based email account(firstname.lastname@example.org)
2. subscribed that address to as many mailing lists as possible.
3. they forwarded all that email to you.
4. all the subscription messages are a result of them continuing to subscribe
that account to more mailing lists.
It looks like your solution is to get graffiti.net/outblaze.com to
shutdown that account or get your email provider(digitalmusicart.com)
to refuse mail from outblaze.com destined for your address.
This may not help you if the perpetrator does the same thing again.
This also could be a typo somewhere but it sounds like the
level of mail indicates an intentional mailbomb.
