there used to be places one could forward SPAM to which enabled RealTime Blackhole lists to work well.

So where do I now froward SPAM to if I was so inclined?
Is there an extension for Thunderbird email client? Or is there a semi-automated way to forward known, actual, SPAM ?
While it can't be stopped, when enough are reported, somebody, somewhere, realises that Open-Relay ISP's are helping the spammers and block their domains ... so I would like to get back into forwarding the darned nuisance crap.

I am not sure of any way to automatically forward spam to RBLS, however you can follow the steps displayed in this article to report spam to SpamCop which is who we use as our RBL.

I have a Spamcop account and tried sending the two SPAMs I just got. But I got a reject from you because I forward'd the emails 'as attachment'. I had done this regularly with my old email provider .. that is, used my email account to forward the attached emails ... and they passed it on. Yours seems to want me to detach then Zip then attach then send ? Crickey, a bit of a hassle if one gets dozens per day, wouldn't you say?
