Define "a specific e-mail address linked to several Verizon DSL IP
If all the email is originating from just a few DSL IP addresses, just add
those IPs to your access list (assuming you're running sendmail). If not,
you'll need to be rather more specific as to what's going on.
Yes, this is a bandage on the symptom rather than a solution to the real
problem, but until you can convince someone at Verizon to cut those IPs
off, it will at least stop the spam.
