View Full Version : My domain got hi-jacked!

07-19-2004, 08:03 AM
It seems that a spammer is using my domain name and now I am getting hundreds of bounces. All the header info seems to be different and can't isolate to one particular individual or group.

How do I begin to remedy this problem?

Sadly, there is nothing that you can do...

It's as if, for example, I send an email and I change the From address to be your email address. You will get the bounce (if it bounces that is) and there is nothing you can do about that. (Well, you could find out where I live and beat me up maybe, but thats about all).

I find that, as the original bounced message is contained in the bounce, and it is always a piece of spam, that SpamAssassin catches it and tags it to be filtered out. But thats the best that can be done.
