that is not the point

the point is that someone who's mail-account is hacked
has to fix this IMMEDIATELY an not after some days and
there is no excuse that this happens again 24 hours
after a off-list mail

also fact is that many people are whitelisting their
mailing-lists on spam-firewalls because especially
on technical lists they are otherwise often catched
as false positives

however: "Dude, I am NOT sending any spam" is after two
days of spamming a reaction with no excuse and if some
foreign hacker is using your account does not change
anything in the fact your are responsible for it
