    done a search here in the forums, cant seem to find anything that looks like the issue I am having..

    I have an email forwarder, not even an email account for this email..

    1000's of spam emails are being sent from ??? with this email forwarder that I use..

    Thanks

    Is the spam being sent to your forwarder or is it simply appearing to be sent from the address of your forwarder?

    Is it just the reply-to address or do other mail headers indicate the mail originates from your server?

    I ask because there is a common form of spam called a "Joe Job" where the reply-to address is set to an individual's address (either your own and it is sent to you, or your address and sent to someone else).
