corvette6769 Posted September 21, 2004 Share Posted September 21, 2004 I have my own domain names. One thing I did several years ago to fight spam was to give everyone a different email address for me so that I would know who to blame if I started getting spam. (i.e. I would give Microsoft Microsoft[at]MyDomainName.com, Yahoo Yahoo[at]MyDomainName.com, eBay ebay[at]MyDomainName.com and etc.) This worked fine for many years as all the emails would be delivered to my Catch-All email address and if one did end up on a spam list, I could go and change it to something else and blackhole the old name. Problem is that all of the sudden, I have started getting tons of spam addressed to made-up email addresses (that I did not create) flooding my catch-all. Apparently they have loaded a list of common sir names into their spam program that now sends 100's of emails to *****[at]MyDomainName.com daily. Any ideas how to combat this?
