Aaarrggh

Good God. 352 e-mails between 11 p.m. last night and 10 a.m. this morning. Some are the catch ups from the outage but lots are bounce messages because some spammer has been using my e-mail address in their from lines.

I’ve been getting hundreds of bounce messages a day for the last week or so and these don’t get caught by Ihug’s spam filter (as technically not spam). However in the last week Ihug have stopped 4,126 spams without as far as I can tell a single false positive.

However I still have 1,000 or so messages in my own junk e-mail filters (combination of Outlook, Nortons and SpamBayes) to look through as they do get some false positives.

You know if a spammer lived nearby me, I think I would be tempted to go postal on him or her. Apart from my e-mail almost becoming unmanageable, I am looking to blow my monthly 1GB Jetsream limit by a massive amount and that is all just by e-mail and a bit of web browsing.
