Remember the other day, when I mentioned that I got joe jobbed?
Well all of the related bounces, spam notices and complaints have finally tapered off to nothing. Except one. The most persistent mail server in the world continues to try to deliver the spoofed email to one last non-working email address.
Here’s the text of the most recent of many updates this dedicated server sent me:
“This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.
A message that you sent has not yet been delivered to one or more of its recipients after more than 528 hours on the queue on dime81.dizinc.com.
The message identifier is: 1G0qnh-0008Mz-Is
The date of the message is: Thu, 13 Jul 2006 07:13:41 +0400
The subject of the message is: Re: your letter
The address to which the message has not yet been delivered is:
save to /
generated by firstname.lastname@example.org
No action is required on your part. Delivery attempts will continue for some time, and this warning may be repeated at intervals if the message remains undelivered. Eventually the mail delivery software will give up, and when that happens, the message will be returned to you.”
528 hours later? Are you kidding me?
If every mail server was this persistent, the entire internet would crash under the weight of undelivered spam.
