I have an inbox with Frontier that I almost never use for anything important. But recently, it has started to receive far too much SPAM. Lets say, between 15 and 20 a day, and all these from probably 2, maybe 3 spammers.
Every couple of days, I would collect the junk from a particular spammer (based upon the originating IP address), and send it, in mbox format, to the abuse people for where those IPs were. That produces good results — for a day or two, until the spammers move on to some other network. And, it’s a bunch of work.
I decided to start forwarding the SPAM on to the firstname.lastname@example.org site. Not sure just how much good it would do — but maybe eventually ???
The FTC site says to forward so the original headers are included. On my computer, I use Thunderbird as a mail client. I find when I use it’s forward function, the headers of the forwarded email are stripped.
I tried forwarding from the Frontier webmail page, and find the same happens.
How do I forward these so the headers of the original email are included?
Thank you! That was exactly (think) what I was looking for.
I guess I never realized that there were two different FORWARD options in Thunderboid. But, in looking at an email I forwarded back to myself — it appears the information the SPAM people might want will be there. Not sure it will do any good.
Also found that Frontier limits how many, or how much, email I can send per day. Oh, well, tomorrow is another day!
