pauladev Posted January 5, 2007 Share Posted January 5, 2007 Recently I have received a huge number of 'undeliverable mail' returns to two of my domain addresses, but all returned to random letters[at]thedomain which I use, rather than to the usual mailbox address. I assume this means that someone is sending out huge amounts of spam and quoting my domain as a return address ie hijacking it. The questions I have are: a) What did I do to attract this attention? These are small personal mail domains. Anyone can find a domain name and then how is it possible to use this as a return address, or make it look as if mail is coming from this domain? b)What can I do about it? I use Mailwasher Pro, and cannot think of a way to configure a rule so that all these returns are automatically deleted and do not have to be manually viewed and deleted by me. c) The logical end to this is that my domain names will be blacklisted by someone else for apparently sending this drivel. How can I prevent this? I did search this forum for similar but couldn't locate the subject so grateful for some explanation and pointers.
