I don't send them automatically, I'm dubious of automatic reporting and like
to verify there is nothing unusual that will trip up trustics parser.
I give them the quick once over, then do fwd as attach. I have my trustic
address in my address book and as soon as I type the first character, it
appears, hit enter and send.
Bob's your uncle.
A lot quicker than finding the offending IP, doing a lookup, finding the
provider, then a abuse report etc.
My experience from the smtp log so far is that for every 10 spamhaus denies, I
get 8 trustic denies and 1 ordb.
I have now removed my badmailfrom and tcp.smtp (allow,RBLSMTPD="-banned for
spamming" rules) as they are too fixed and ridgid whereas spamhaus, ordb
and trustic are flexible, continuously updated, and people can get out if
they fix their systems/procedures/TOS.
Fair is fair.
Natural justice, or due process as the yanks say.
I expect trustic to get better as more people provide spam mails.
