Re: Help: my e-mail address is being spoofed by a spammer!
I suppose it had to happen. In the past couple hours, some spammer has used my e-mail address to spoof the "from:" line of their e-mail headers. In the past hour, I've received several hundred bounce messages for mail I never sent. (Fortunately, my junk mail filter traps most of it.)
Any thoughts on what I can do other than buying large quantities of antacids? I assume that until the current storm abates--i.e., until the spammer gets bored because the junk filters are trapping their spoofed messages--I'm stuck with the problem unless I'm willing to change e-mail addresses and notify a _large_ number of people of the change. Fortunately, no angry e-mails yet from victims of the spam.
