QuestionA Flurry Of "Returned Mail" [modified] PinmemberRoger Wright5-Apr-12 20:06 
Can someone help me to interpret what's going on here?
 
My Junk Mail folder is filling up rapidly with email rejection notices. This has been going on sporadically for a couple of weeks, with a flurry of several hundred such messages, then a trickle, then none for a day or two before it starts again. A typical message is:
 

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.
 
A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:
 
  remy525@yahoo.com
    SMTP error from remote mail server after end of data:
    host mta5.am0.yahoodns.net [67.195.103.233]: 554 Message not allowed - [299]
 
------ This is a copy of the message's headers. ------
 
Return-path: <<code>my.address</code>>

The only constant is the reference to "bosxxxxxxx.eigbox.net" in the middle portion of the message header. Everything else in the message changes at random, and the IP addresses associated with my email address don't match anything I've ever used. What is doing this, and which server is compromised? Should I notify the admin for the eigbox.net domain that this is going on, or is that being spoofed, too?
 
My concern here is that some of the dumber blacklist algorithms might block me widely because they use the spoofed email address instead of examining the IP address. This small flood is a sign to me of a much larger iceberg melting (global warming, perhaps?) with only the tip showing up in my mailbox. Should I be concerned?
Will Rogers never met me.
