Sorry I didn't answer your email.  I did do as you suggested and sent a 
59KByte message to abuse@xxxxxxx.  I got their answer just a few minutes ago.  
Their answer was basically, "None of the messages originated from so 
we can't help."  

Yes your help was valued.  Thank you.  Sorry I didn't say so earlier, but I 
had several things to try and neglected to report on all of them.  By the 
way, nothing has changed.
