Friggin' spam!

Filed under: by Brendon Upson on 2006-11-13

Has anyone else noticed a surge in spam over the last couple of weeks. I have got now >300 spams in the last 2 days! Not happy. I am guessing I now spend about 30 minutes per day cleaning the crap from my mailbox. 

I am busy trying to get kspam working on Linux without too much success :-( 

I now see these sneaky bastards are purposely sending mail to a non-existent address on my server with a from address of who they really want the mail to go to. Now it appears we are all acting as unwitting transfer agents. I have just turned off sending delivery failures - now they stay in the mail.box.

This is all such a HUGE waste of time.
