Once again, there is a system that is misconfigured. Instead of
bouncing mail or delivering to the recipient as it is supposed to, it
is bouncing back to Attrition without changing any headers, changing
the bounce to be from postmaster, etc.

Each time this happens, there is one thing in common with the remote
system. It is running Microsoft SMTPSVC. As usual, in their attempt to
reinvent the wheel they have made it square like the chimps they are.

So everyone send a nice mail to Microsoft and thank them for their
shitty products once again. A mail protocol that can't even bounce
mail correctly.

The offending system has been blocked (again). That puts the count up
to 19.

ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org

To unsubscribe email majordomo () attrition org with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY
of the mail.
