How do I report e-mail abuse?:


General Information

TWC is dedicated to ensuring that its service is used in a manner that is consistent with the policies set forth in the Terms of Service Agreement and Acceptable Use Policy.

In order to properly investigate a report of abuse, certain elements are required. Below is a description of what TWC Interent Security and Abuse needs in order to process your report.

TWC will not accept logs that are not in plain text (ascii) format. Do not attach files to your e-mail. All reports must be included in the body of the message.

If the incident that was the basis of the complaint was not sent by a TWC customer, or someone using TWC Mail, or someone using the TWC system, or is not related to theTWC system or content maintained by TWC, then TWC is not the proper entity to contact, as we are not in a position to take any action.

If this is the case, and you still wish to pursue the matter, you may want to contact the person responsible for the incident, or the Internet Service Provider through which the e-mail originated. A good place to begin in the instance of unwanted e-mail is http://spam.abuse.net/userhelp/howtocomplain.shtml.

  

Reporting E-mail Abuse

For complaints about e-mail incidents from TWC customers, e-mail should be sent to abuse@rr.com. If you are reporting an e-mail incident, it is important that you forward the e-mail in question (or one example e-mail) and include the full e-mail headers, logs, or other pertinent information in plain text in the body of your e-mail (not as attachments). If the full headers of the e-mail are not included, we will be unable to discern where the e-mail originated, and thus will be unable to assist you with the matter. For information on how to display full headers in your e-mail client, please select the client in use.
