419 Attachment email from IP 18.104.22.168, using 3 Yahoo IP's. including above IP, as relays:
Is me Mary Jones
Mary J (email@example.com)
This is the same Spammer, frequently reported to firstname.lastname@example.org (until their recent reporting format change to "ARF", that doesn't allow explanations), who regularly uses 3 Yahoo accounts to relay Spam emails to obfuscate his actual location. Yahoo shares full culpability for the proliferation of this Spammer's emails, in that Yahoo employs scanning software (rather than humans capable of making a judgement call) not programmed to recognize Yahoo's involvement unless the originating IP is a Yahoo address, allowing the Yahoo accounts to remain open to relay even more Spam. In failing to supply subscribers with an adequate means of closing these Yahoo accounts, which violate the Can Spam Act of 2003, Yahoo is itself in violation of Sec6(a)(3)(A) of said Act, as well as guilty of aiding/ abetting violation of said Act by allowing the Spammer to use Yahoo facilities for obfuscation of his location and proliferation of his Spam after notification of such actions.
