Re: [tor-talk] [Need quick help] 30+ mbps node taken down by host
you are right, SMTP is blocked by default. But people can i.e. access
hotmail.com via webinterface (where your IP is then put into the mail
as originating IP aswell) or use SMTP on secure ports (but that mostly
comes with authentication, I guess).
You should ask your provider to get the mail headers of the spam, to
see how exactly it was done, and then maybe block i.e. exit to the
hotmail IPs, if it was sent via hotmail webinterface (to show them you
are doing something).
