inappropriate to introduce multiple points of failure. It creates a

Use real POP3 accounts, without forwarding. If your email client can't
handle fetching from multiple POP3 accounts, then get a better client.

they're a source of spam. The normal procedure is to begin blackholing
emails when the offender's abuse dept doesn't handle warnings in a
timely fashion. IOW, my guess is that Comcast got tired of the spam,
warned them, and got no response. So they upped the anty by blocking,
because irate customers often manage to wake up providers...
