Spam From My Own Domain?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have had a site here for a while, and I have just recently started getting a few spam messages that appear to come from random gibberish e-mail accounts at my own domain name, although in fact those accounts don't exist, and on checking the headers the messages come from foreign IPs. I was wondering if this something to be worried about, in other words might it indicate some sort of breach or insecurity on my site, or is this probably just some sort of spoofing?

 

Thanks so much for your help!

I get that all the time.

Its part of having a domain.

 

I reduced a lot of this type of spam by turning off the catchall feature

set the default address to :fail:

 

That way only email to a valid address will get through.

Just wondering where you could go to access this feature?

 

(Don't mean to hijack thread or anything, but one of my email accounts is getting lots of Spam {just one})

Another option you have is adding an SPF record to your domain. This can help reduce e-mail forgery.

 

If you'd like us to set this up for you, open a ticket with the helpdesk and we'd be happy to do so.

 

Hello,
