GeneralInteresting source of spam... PinprotectorOriginalGriff14-Jul-14 8:36 
I get a couple of items of spam a week, which are "bounced" from my hosts as "undeliverable":
Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients
And the recipient is one of my old email addresses on a previous domain. I've wondered exactly what is going on, but haven't worried too much because none of the message send logs show any sign of the message, the passwords are unchanged, and changing them doesn't do anything. Until today when I had a thought: what if it's one of the forwarded accounts?
 
I have a couple of accounts which are there to soak up rubbish: DontSendMeAnyCr*p@MyDomain.com (forwarding: direct to bin) and so forth, and I have a couple with forwarding enabled to send them through to my primary address: Webmaster@MyDomain.com, Sales@MyDomain.com and suchlike. So I had a trawl through the accounts - which is a slow process as I have to open each one in turn, and they won't open in a new tab either.
And sure enough there is just one email address that is forwarded to that email. And it's one of my "specific purpose" email address - ones I create for a specific company to reply to so they don't fill me with drivel if they sell it: I can just close the email account and say "stuff you".
 
Who is it? UK TV Licencing...now, how did a spammer selling Gentleman Enlargement Products get that one? Laugh | :laugh:
