Satya Levine
Is there a value in reporting spam emails? If so, where should they be reported?

Thanks,

I received this msg as well...

Perhaps the spammers are generating random@haas email addresses and trying each permutation knowing that eventually a string of chars will match a valid addr...not sure if our local exchange server has a heuristic to detect this kind of behavior...campus might...I am not an email Admin so one of them should weigh in.

Satya and Lawrence,
It is not a "haas" thing, as I too have rcv'd this email.  I didn't know
what it said, since I deleted it without opening - which is what I hope
both of you did.

Yes, there is a value to reporting spam - I believe the ucb address is
[hidden email].

That said, this particular email does NOT fit into the typical spam filters:
1) It is, apparently, from an individual that is not deceptive.  The FROM
address looks legit.  It does not look like:
"Your Friend" <[hidden email]>
2) It looks like it is sent to just you, not a huge list.
3) No links in the email that could be checked.

Obviously, the headers might prove useful in setting up a spam rule.  When
you do send it to "abuse", make sure you include the email headers.

Hi Lawrence,

Because our mail is not routed through Calmail, Haas has its own procedure for reporting spam, I've e-mailed you off list with instructions.

I asked some folks here in the College of Chemistry business office and most of them got it; they aren't Micronet subscribers so that shoots down my tentative hypothesis.
