I occaisionaly get an email, from an A330 Airbus Senior Manager,
containing details about the A330 inspections, modifications and
repairs including diagrams. The senders name is genuine, I have
checked, but attempting to email the guy back to try to stop the emails
is ignored. I don't know where he got my address from, I have no
connection with Airbus, or aircraft in general.
Anyone got an idea of what to try next?
If you know the name is genuine, try phoning one of the Airbus public
departments and see if you can explain to them and get them to put you
through to the department, if not the actual sender.
Pick one of these that seems most relevant
I assume there is the usual boilerplate text about confidientiality but
I don't see much risk in you forwarding the next one to
email@example.com with the question:
"I've been trying to X sending me these these emails for a while now
without success, so may I take it I can share them with others - eg the
reply-to address is (intended to be) valid
That of course is the best thing to do.
There is no reason why they should stop ending you these mails otherwise.
Any company employee who takes any action that is not either making his
company money or saving it money is not a proper employee.
You(OP) are expecting action for no financially beneficial reason

Unless there is a confidentialty clause on it then go public on facebook
twitter or whatever the socials use these days and display the contents
with a write up on how they freely distribute it., I reckon they will
get back to you within 24 hours
Can you actually be held to a confidentiality clause that you have not
signed up to when someone has sent something addressed to your email?
The company has already broken confidentiality by sending it to the
Indeed. I think I agree with your reasoning here 100%.
AND to furher add to their misery, such clauses are in tort law, not
They would have to prove intention to make money out of, or damage them
deliberately using, the breach ...
It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.
I used to be postmaster for around 1000 domains.
I actually did go through all the bounces every week or so in case there
was something important to my customers. Misconfigured addresses mostly.
I difd get oine corker. A hot explicit 'I'm waiting for you maked,
cooking the meal email from a rent boy to his lover...he hads mistyped
I sent him as polite emasil back saying if he did want to express such
sentiments maybe he should take care to enter te correct username.
My experinec is that I am te only postmaster who ever actually read his
Webmaster@, abuse@, postmaster@ are all hangovers from the days when
internet email systems were run by conscientious tekkies in university
Nobody gives a fuck these days. You really think ' firstname.lastname@example.org'

Dunno. But my experience is that it generally works.
Back in the mid 1980s I was given a mail alias at the University of
Edinburgh (I was working with them on operating system development). It
pointed at my University of Kent email address. It's still occasionally
When I retired, the Kent address was forwarded to a 'kent4life' account
(the idea of some bright young thing in the PR department, I understand
against the advice of the IT department).
I was recently informed that all 'kent4life' accounts will be terminated
I emailed the postmaster at Edinburgh and asked for the redirection to be
changed. It was done within a couple of hours.
There are other examples but that is the most recent.
