Email extractor
Any one get hit with this & wat to do ?

 6:00 am on Mar 20, 2002 (gmt 0)

Ok, I got hit by an email extractor program, & it gave me 99k of hits. My server logged on the IP & the program. So i contacted the fella who did this from an lookup, asked them wat they do it for.

They said one of their employee accidentally used the Trial version on them, but did not get any mails bcoz it was Trial. So I would like to ask how to we proceed from here. ?
thanks for all the help - but in our country we have no such law yet for spamming.

If you're using an Apache server and the mod_rewrite module is available, you could use something like the simplified approach described here [bignosebird.com]. A somewhat more sophisticated solution is here [engelschall.com].
