How we deal with the spam forwarding problem
We have a spam forwarding problem. Specifically, we forward spam, although not through choice; it's a political mandate not to impose filtering on people, and some of the people who don't filter forward their email elsewhere, and predictable things ensue.
We're dealing with this in three ways:
Our spam-forwarding source IP address has already shown up on a few email reputation systems, although I believe not in any of the public DNSbls. This doesn't bother me, because I can hardly blame anyone who blacklists it; it is pretty much a spam source.
(Since I don't believe in tempting fate, it has an innocuous host name.)
