Ok its quite obvious that you have zero clue. You admitted that 'your' system 
sent the message to sorbs and now your complaining about it. Everyone else is 
laughing at you because rather than preventing this by making your systems 
reject this at the smtp conversation and making it the responsibilty of the 
sending mta, your just raving on about legal actions which would get laughed 
out of court no matter how much money was thrown at it.
