    Forged header to fight it?
    I don't know if i'm alone in this but it seems like the last few weeks I have been getting a bunch more bounced email from forged know they use my email address on a different connection and it comes back to me not them.

    Does anyone have any ideas how to combat this?

    its not forged headers, they just change the reply to email to yours.

    No real way to fight it, just hope it stops eventually.

    I do not have a clue as to how to prevent it from happening.

    This has happened to me a few times.....seems to go in and heavy for a while and then stops. Maybe they figure that my e-mail address is worn out.

    Interestingly, I have at least one e-mail address for each of my websites and only one of my e-mail addresses has been used this way.

    Yesterday was a horrible day for me. I must have gotten about 150 bounced emails yesterday. But today is quiet.

    I have started making contact forms instead of publishing my domain email addresses anywhere. This has almost stopped inbound spam. These forms post to a database with a backend area where I can read the messages. I also capture IP addresses of the posters. There is also a ban control (some punks still try to spam my forms!) . This doesn't protect you from someone using your domain but it hasn't been a problem for me yet.
