    Hi,

    I've had a search of these forums, but maybe I was using the wrong words.

    I've been getting a lot of bounce-backs from other hosts for the last few weeks, and I've discovered that spammers are spoofing my domain (i.e. sending from blah@mydomain.com).

    They aren't sending through my server itself, rather they are just spoofing the sending address.

    Is there any way I can stop or limit this? I have heard about SPF, but I wasn't sure if that was suited to this particular problem.

    If it's of any extra help, I'm using Chirpy's excellent MailScanner package.

    Thanks in advance,
    Nick.

    Go on, have a guess
    There's not a great deal you can do except setup some exim filters through cPanel to try and weed out the bounces. One thing you can certainly do is ensure you're not using a catchall default address other than :fail: for the affected domain(s).

    Hi,

    Thanks - that's not an issue, I'm just seeing the bounces in the mail queue.

    It's a shame there's no (effective) way of stopping this kind of thing from happening :(
