leaking blackholing?

I just received an email sent to one of my blackholed IDs. Somehow it leaked and was delivered to my default mailbox. Anyone else seeing this? Someone may want to check this.

leaking blackholing?

Hi,

Could the mail have been bcc'd to an address that you use? I get this all the time, the to address shows as an address I've blackholed but checking the "envolope to" in the header shows an address that isn't blackholed.

It's another spammer trick to try and get around spam protection and blackholes and blocks.

Yes, you are right. The To: address was blackholed, the Envelope-To: one was not. Just fixed my mailer filters and this won't happen again. Thanks.
