Spam

In the last couple of days I've had loads of spam emails. I don't normally get any.

Is anyone else getting the same?

Yes, same here (although nowhere near as many as without the spam filtering enabled).

cheers,

Re: Spam

Yes, and some dodgy looking ones. Most look like phishing. Until now they've been very rare. I wonder if something has gone wrong with the filter.

Drowning in Spam today - all sent to RandomPerson@mydomain.co.uk

At the moment this is the format "Voice Message from 010234370191 - name unavailable"

Earlier today they were "Your invoice - name unavailable"

Just checked my catch-all inbox to find another seven.

Re: Spam

50 more just arrived, mostly 'voice message' and 'virility supplement'.

Not happy.

Don't want to boast or anything, but I've had NO spam to any of my four PN mailboxes (with spam filter 'off', none to my Gmail, Yahoo or even my old Tiscali/TT webmail.

Re: Spam

Phew! Not just me then.

Well over 400 emails today! Plusnet say there's no issue and everything seems set up okay but they've logged it as a fault to be investigated.

In the meantime I dare not open my mail client! Ticked off

Re: Spam

Odd thing for me was that the vtwo email addresses which received them have never had them before but judging by the To box I wonder if a local government employee had has his address book grabbed

Re: Spam

Good thing I came across this thread as I thought I was going nuts as receiving a few of the voicemail spam ones and JUST TODAY I am getting bombarded with "Mail Delivery System" - "Mail Delivery Failed" etc..

I am getting around 50 or so per hour. I called the support desk and they said they are escalating it and will get back to me in 48 hours. At this rate I am going to have many thousands, so just on the phone to them again...

 

I have asked them to set up some filter on their side as otherwise I will have way too many by the morning.. It is being escalated and looked into..

Mine has slowed down now to about 10 an hour. Had to basically flag everything as junk.
