The spammers are using a new trick to cause the email to bounce off a mail server and the return address is spoofed.
And not a thing you can do. Just delete it.
If you are worried that others think you are the spammer, then that person just needs to catch up on the spammer's new tools.
i have had a website for years, hosted on pair networks, and i have a very cryptic password . . .
the webhosting deal comes with e mail, but i don't use it, as i learned early on that once a domain is created, you get spammed with tons of stuff addressed to "info@(domain.com)" and "firstname.lastname@example.org"
. . .
well anyway, once a month i check my e mail on that account just to get all the spam off the server, but last night i noticed a large amount of -- not spam, but "returned as undeliverable" messages. i looked at them, and here was all this petroleum stock spam with something like "hjshdf@(mydomainname).com" as the return address.
i immediately changed my password, but . . . is there anything i can do about this? did they just use my domain name or are they accessing my email server?
any advice would be appreciated --- fj
