    Anybody ever run in to this? I'm getting 5-10 e-mails a day (Undelivered errors primarily) where a spammer has tried to send viagra spam (and the like) from <random name>@mydomain.com to another e-mail address.

    I'm worried about this from a blacklist / SPEWS perspective. Any suggestions on preventing this or stopping it? I know there's little I can do given they are just spoofing e-mail addresses.

    Thanks for any help / advice.

    Brian

    Just noticed this thread -- the exact same thing has happened to me.. about a week ago they started flooding a contact form (almost identical to that one) with junk e-mails.

    My question now might be how to prevent them from using my domain to send spam in the future. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Brian

    This has been happening to us for a while now, too. I don't think there's anything we can do about it...

    :(
