Correct, the recent message from Academic Tours (with 2 megabytes of
attachments!) was not via birding-aus.  The headers show it coming direct
from Oz-Email, not via Deakin.

The remedies suggested already are good.  Tell Academic Tours what you
think of their unethical business practices.  Also complain to their
ISP: Oz-Email.

Someone on this list must know Mary White personally.  Let her know her
name is being associated with net abuse.
