Compostinfo does not send out SPAM, (sometimes known as unsolicited emails), nor are our servers being used to send out SPAM. SPAM attributed to Compostinfo.org originates from viruses such as W32.Sobig.F which are mass-mailing worms that send themselves to all the email addresses that they find on a host's system. These emails typically use fake FROM addresses. These addresses are arbitrarily picked from the internet and unfortunately they occasionally use the domain Compostinfo.org.
Commercial bulk e-mail organisations (spammers) also use fake FROM address inorder to circumvent anti-spam software.
By using this site or submitting your email addresses you accept that there is a possibility that you may receive SPAM, and that at present there is nothing Compostinfo or its ISP can do about this. However, we are maintaining a mis-use log for the domain Compostinfo.org in case it becomes possible in the future to take some action. We would be therefore grateful if you would foreword any offending emails to spamreport@Compostinfo.org.
