Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Telling vendor email was compromised 2

John Jorsett writes: I create for myself a unique email address for every vendor with which I do business, and that address isn't kept in my address book. When a spammer sends something to that address, I know that the vendor's email address database has been compromised. Trouble is, when I notify the vendor that their customer's email addresses are leaking and that they should check their security, I get no response and, as far as I can tell, no action is ever taken. I just change to a different email address, so should I even be bothering with notification, and if so, what's the best way to inform a vendor that their security needs attention?
