Speaking of which.. (can you tell it is Friday, everyone has time to be helpful)...

Our Spam Auditors noticed a fairly new 'email verification' network, at least the IP range.. majority of the 31.129.32.0 - 31.129.63.255 network used, and triggering various rate limiters..


Coming out of the Ukraine..

Someone is probably washing an old list using that 'service'.

#31.129.33.22                      1   qzzqwwazrpi.my-addr.com
#31.129.33.163                     1   aewqwwazrpi.my-addr.com

That is the naming pattern..

That kind of large scale process can throw your invalid recip logs a loop pretty quick.. and skew your stats..

Course, it is probably better than the list washing services using Amazon IP space.. at least they clearly identify what they do..

There abouts, email is free, for a certain class, so adding a lot of names to the left of the @ is very old school but also a lot of the scrappers end up with all those weird usernames like 4ffb8ac-a0a-3cc0-e87c-65a3df124...@example.net <mailto:4ffb8ac-a0a-3cc0-e87c-65a3df124...@example.net>

that appear in email headers as part of references in mailing lists etc.

The ratio does vary depending on age and usage a domain has had so I'm serious when I say it could vary as much as +10 -50%.
