Spam - Read request

This is a new one on me...

Spam emails requesting a Read request. Obviously I never send one but I can imagine many people do, maybe without knowing, which then confirms the existence of the email address.

I've had a couple of emails like that, I never send read request responses anyway, no matter who sent it... Smiley

Yup - hundreds of them over the past 24 hours. They became such a pain in the butt that I set up an email rule on my server to reject anything with the phrase TR9301 in the subject.
Seems to have done the trick now - just getting the more boring spam trickling through instead.
