They did say a few weeks ago that they were testing for open SMTP relays on ADSL connections.

I read that aswell but they've been doing it from the time I got connected to ADSL, it's just got more often after the anounsement.

Mank Thanks

Angus,

We do actively scan our IP ranges in search of open relay servers. However, this should only happen once a day at around midnight.

If you believe that you are being scanned from another source, please provide your firewall logs and email them to abuse@f9.co.uk.

Best Regards,

Dave.
