You could be right, but then again all we've ever gotten (in 4+ years) is tons of spam.  Likewise for "*.ru", "*.dk", "*.it", and some South American yahoos.

You might want to double check with management.  Blocking out a major
player in the pacific rim might be foolhardy for a company whose website
advertises world class software.  It's amazing the countries we're getting
inquiries from.  Perhaps it might be better to deny *.iis.u-tokyo.ac.jp
unless of course you market software to international universities.
Perhaps a letter to webmaster@yari.iis.u-tokyo-ac.jp,
majordomo@yari.iis.u-tokyo-ac.jp and whatever the Japanese equivalent is.
Maybe you know a software player in Japan who could help you out with the

We received some spam mail from "orstrich.IIS.U-TOKYO.AC.JP
<lkghdk@yari.iis.u-tokyo.ac.jp>".  I want to enter the host in my "deny"
list - would I enter the host name as "U-TOKYO.AC.JP", or as
"IIS.U-TOKYO.AC.JP", or as "orstrich.IIS.U-TOKYO.AC.JP"?  Since we don't
know ANYONE from Japan, how would I exclude all mail from ".JP", knowing
that such mail will only be spam?
