Looks like spam sent from my email address? Setup SPF...




Unfortunately this is a common occurrence, where spammers, viruses and worms spoof email from addresses. This is possible due to the way that email is designed to work and there is little you can do to stop them.

 

Having said that - we do support SPF (Sender Policy Framework) and you can enable this via your control panel. This sets up some rules on our servers that say what "machines" are actually allowed to send email from your domain name, so when other servers that also support SPF receive email from your domain name - they check with our server (in real time) to see if it has been sent from an authenticated server. You can find more details on SPF at http://spf.pobox.com/
