this is the reply i have just received from Sky

Quote:
Dear Mr Robertson,


Thank you for taking the time to email Sky.


Sky have no control over IP addresses and therefore cannot do anything about the IP address that you have provided.


I am sorry that I have not been able to assist you on this occasion however if you need any further help or assistance on a Sky related issue please reply directly to this email.


Kind Regards


Service Excellence Consultant

Executive Support Team
so the header shows the IP used to send the spam/virus is a sky IP on the sky network, but sky say they cannot do anything about the IP, so if its their IP then it is them that should do something.

"Sky have no control over IP addresses" That's funny

if they have no control over them then they don't need them they can give them back to the RIR

or better yet transfer them to me

Exactly. They run one of the largest Broadband services in the UK and yet don't control any IPs. Maybe Sky Broadband customers use pints of milk to connect to the internet rather than IPs like everywhere else

No pints of beer and the employees are helping themselves to to much of it
