Scott Murray has decided to do something about it. He has written an AppleScript that automates the reporting of spam to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org, the US Federal Trade Commission’s official spam-report mailbox.
Using this script, he hopes, will “let the .Mac team know about all this spam, so they can crank up the juice on their filters.”
Instructions for installing and using the script can be found on Scott’s web page .
- USA gets better but still top spam source
- AppleScript for spam reporting
- Gmail, mail.app and IMAP, Part II
- Image spam: Spam gets more canny
