Time for a rant X-(

If there is one thing that gets up my nose it is spamming from NZ advertisers who smarmily suggest that you reply with "Remove" plus your email address to be free of their "junk mail" (the latter are my words, not theirs!)

Problem is, they hide the #$%&@^* To: address so you don't know which darned one received it, and I have about 10 of the beasties for business and family, all of which download in one hit.

The latest offenders are:

Reply-To: info@denning.co.nz
From: info@denning.co.nz
To: info@denning.co.nz
Subject: Training Software

From: "Super Services Ltd" ssl@ihug.co.nz
To: "SUPER SERVICES LTD" ssl@ihug.co.nz
Subject: Promotion (27th, Nov.)

I have never heard of the former, and I am not a customer of the latter, but how can I get out of their clutches without sending them all of my email addresses?

To be 100% fair, those who do include the To: address have always played ball and I have never heard from them again, though that only applies to locals, we all know the folly of trying to unsubscribe from overseas spam sites.

Xtra is good at shutting down spammers that use these techniques but I don't know about ihug. I guess I am about to find out. Anybody know the reporting address? or is it abuse@ihug etc.

Cheers

I'll be into that. :D Thanks Jen.

Rant over, I can be polite to them now.

Maybe they can tell me what list my address was on ?:|
