Some useful advice on how to deal with the spammer. Jim Mott H-Holocaust =================================== From D.G. Myers [firstname.lastname@example.org] You might suggest several courses of action to members of H-Antisemitism and H-Holocaust. First, everyone who received the chapters of the antisemitic book should file a complaint with email@example.com, forwarding the full message header. (On Eudora messages, this can be produced by hitting the BLAH BLAH BLAH button.) Second, if they already use Eudora 3.0 or higher, they can set their programs to filter out any messages from "Shoahbook@aol.com." (Free copies of Eudora 3.1 can be downloaded; set the browser to http://www.eudora.com/eudoralight.) Third, if they are using an earlier version of Eudora they can prevent receipt of the chapters by setting their "Checking Mail" preferences to "Skip large messages." Both of you should contact AOL directly and demand the antisemite's *other* AOL addresses so that list members can set their programs to filter out any possible mail from him. It is really terrible that this stuff should have been timed to come just before Yom Kippur. Gmar hatimah tovah to you both. <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> D. G.
