    Default Spammers got my email address as their sender

    Looks like a spammer is using MyCos email address to send tulipe our, which means I'm getting (so far) best part of 5,000 bounced emails coming back to my mail box, I've got a rule which junks them all but anything I can do? And what are the odds my domain is going to get blacklisted?

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    I got a Nigerian 419 scam through the post yesterday. Apparently, someone with the same surname as me has died in China, leaving a huge amount in a Chinese bank account that the sender is will to go halves with me. I really appreciated the fact it was a letter, not an email. It's the personal touch that so often gets missed these days.
    Fact check: Mostly false

    Have you set up SPF with your email provider? I did this years ago when I had problems. It just took a phone call and an email with the script and it was sorted.

    Have a look at this

    Check with your mail provider/server admin. Looks like they dropped the ball if this is happening. SPF record at the very least, it has been ages since i had to deal with tripe like this. Nowadays MyCo email is in Office365 (I get 5 E3 licenses with MS Action Pack among the shed load of other MS licenses for £165/year = no brainer)
