Concerning spam from our domain

Post by SSCBen » Wed Apr 16, 2008 12:29 pm

I just opened my email to get 300+ bounced emails. A spammer is forging sscentral.org emails. We don't send spam, so don't send me a message about it. I probably won't even be able to read it through all the bounced messages I'm receiving.

Do not ask me water gun questions by email or PM. Please post the question at the forum. Private questions and suggestions are welcome by PM and email. Also, I do not sell or buy water guns online.

How are they spoofing an sscentral.org address? Can you stop it, or do we just wait it out?

Hope things improve, for your sake.

They're spoofing my email address. It's a very easy to do task because there's no verification stage in email. I could send email with any from address I want.

It's died down a little bit, but I'm still getting bounces. Hopefully it will end completely today.

There's nothing I can do to stop this aside from switching email addresses.
