I doubt it.  My servers are clean.

Or a simple shell script that does:
while /bin/true ...

But that's easy to block.  Use random From addresses (and random To addresses 
when aimed at the secondary MX servers) and it's slightly more difficult to 
block, change your IP address every hour and it's very difficult.

This is why when I wrote Postal I made sure it was easy to block accidental 
or malicious DOS attacks.  But I presume that the koenig.su people aren't 
smart enough to know how to do that.  ;)

I do not get viruses because I do not use MS software.
If you use Outlook then please do not put my email address in your
address-book so that WHEN you get a virus it won't use my address in the
>From field.
