if anyone from cox.net is reading...

    ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
<abuse at cox.net>
     (reason: 552 5.2.0 F77u1Y00B2ccxfT0000000 Message Refused.  A URL

This seems a rather unwise policy on behalf of cox.net -- their
customers 
can originate scam emails, but cox.net abuse desk apparently does not
care 
to hear about it.
