Why has an unrequested email address appeared

I've started getting (since 29.3.07) 'sales' type marketing emails, to an email address which I haven't set up, based on my website name. The site is hosted by Plusnet.
Who would have set up an email address from my website without my authority? Any ideas anyone on how to stop these unwanted emails?

You can use anything before the @ symbol on the Plusnet mail server.

I get some too. Usually to anon@

Set-up a filter to remove them automatically. That's what I've done.

Yep, same here. I get loads of spam mails coming through to my domain names some to specific things like sales@... and admin@... and some to completely random addresses before the @ symbol.

You can either setup a filter as ignatu suggests, or you can set up a blackhole, details of how to do this are available at:
