Rob's Ramblings

Saturday 31 May 2008



Almost 3,600 emails over the last 23 hours, the majority being delivery failure messages. Some a**h**e spammer is spoofing one of my email addresses as the 'from' address on their crap.

It's not the first time, but what makes it worse this time is it's a (normally) little used email address that gets forwarded to my main google mail account by virtue of 'getmail' running on a machine here. So every mail is fetched in full and resent out to google. So using up a considerable amount of my bandwidth.

Thank goodness I'm on an "unlimited" package, though how anybody is going to react to seeing thousands of emails eminating from my connection (even if they are all to myself) I do not know.

My SPAM folder, emptied automatically after 30 days, currently has 18,137 unread emails in it. Ouch.
