Abuse is a simple program which will help you fight back spam.
It will "read" any e-mail header, go on-line and check NICs, open relay DBs and black-listed IP ranges to discover the address of the abuse-desk you should write to.

Further it will tell you if the sender's IP address is an open relay or is blacklisted as a spam source.
Simply cut and paste the email header/body or select an Outlook folder containing spam emails, then Abuse will analyze headers and either print the relevant abuse-desks or directly e-mail them a letter of complaint (LART).

Abuse is evolving and some of the features we had planned have not yet been implemented (integration with main e-mail clients, a more intuitive interface...), please bear with us while we work on improving the code.
