Some spammer has started sending out ads for 'discount' software, with my email address in the 'from' field.

My inbox has started filling up with bounce messages, and it's only a matter of time before the irate hate-mail starts arriving.

I suppose I should count myself lucky, it could be porn, penis-enlarging pills, or 'Vote for George Bush'.

The irritating thing is, this is the email address I use for business, if it gets added to some list of 'known spammers' I could find my legitimate email being blocked.

AAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH !!!!!

A SLOW AND HORRIBLE DEATH TO ALL SPAMMERS !!!!

HANGING IS TOO GOOD FOR THESE BASTARDS !!!!!

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

But if it wasn't for these wholesome individuals how would people in the world go on with out knowing how to enlarge their penis, refinance their home (assuming one day they'll have one), or get a different auto insurance every other day?

Take heart, these people truly do care about you as an individual.

The hope on the horizon is that Sender Policy Framework will eliminate the spoofed mail from your own domain. That will get rid of the bulk of the SPAM which makes it past my filters.
