Spam is a four letter word

Someone has chosen my domain to use in their spammage, sending out emails "from" my domain using random characters as the front end user name. *sigh* Thankfully, GMail's spam filters are pretty good, having captured over 600 emails so far and ushering them directly to the spam folder. Still have had about 10 get through to the Inbox. *double sigh*

that happened to me as well as couple of months back. GMail caught most of it as well.

a couple of weeks ago that wasn't the case, cuz a ton got through their Spam filter (they use/purchased Postini...eew!) But there was a major spam attack that affected all anti-spam companies, including mine.

Google bought Postini, but that doesn't mean that they are already using the technology. If anything, the purchase of Postini was to give them an "in" to the corporate market.
