Thanks Jamie,  I appreciate that.

Just to let the two of you know, we talked to Jeff Dranetz today, and he
admitted that he was in fact the person who sent the forged message (to
Netcom that is, the one which you had forwarded me a log entry for - we
didn't discuss the other recent mail bombings with him.)

We reminded him of our policy concerning acceptable use, and explained 
that we would not be able to re-activate his account for him because of 
this.  He didn't seem to be particularly surprised.

This probably won't stop him forever - there are probably 50 other ISPs 
either local or national which he can subscribe to as a local call, but 
at least there won't be any more such attacks coming from Xensei.

If there's anything else I can ever be of assistance with please let me 

Take care.
