The publicly available information for UUnet dialup IP space is:
126.96.36.199/15 uu.net (official)
188.8.131.52/15 uu.net (official)
184.108.40.206/14 uu.net (unofficial)
220.127.116.11/24 uunet.ca (unofficial)
18.104.22.168/16 uu.net (official)
The relay*.uu.net servers _are_ running relay protection code; it does
not refuse MAIL FROM: or RCPT TO:, but bounces after the whole message
has been accepted by the server. It's UUNET's bandwidth, they can do
that if they want to.
My recommendation (and John Bradshaw's) is to block the dialup IP pools
from accessing your mail server, unless you're a UUNET dialup reseller.
Dialup customers should be using their provider's mail servers as their
relay, not doing direct mail.
Yes, I do work for UUnet.
No, I do not want to hear about it.
