No spam filter is flawless and occasionally something gets through. Most of the time I bin them without comment, but this one caught my eye and inevitably I had to read it.
Posts about "email"
Every now and then my email accounts suffer what I suspect many people who own domains do these days - log on to your email and find a couple of thousand emails saying 'Message can't be delivered' or that kind of ilk.
It's bad enough turning on your computer after three days only to find some f***er has used your domain name as the from address whilst spamming the bergeebus out of half the known world. But then you find that several hundred of those email addresses the b***ards have used are no longer in operation, so you get several hundred "message not delivered" emails.
So hello. Here I am back again - it's been a while since I last posted, partly because I was just really busy early August (I have an email backlog a mile long) and partly because Catherine and myself were on holiday in Norway.
So the new web forms survived their first email injection attack. Should really get the new script rolled out on the rest of the site now I suppose.
I seem to be on the list for attempts to con me out of cash using ebay and Paypal. I get a substantial amount of them per day, whilst Catherine (oddly) gets none.
We are Promoting a Dishwasher. An immortal phrase from a spam email I receieved the other day. Didn't say what the job was that the dishwasher had been given, but I'm sure it was the best candidate.
No. I don't want an imitation Rolex.
Whilst it's great to have emails coming in via the email forms again, it's reminded me just how much crap I get through...
It's been almost a year since I switched on SpamAssassin for the first time. I was rather cautious - setting it up so all spam would go into one folder that I could review and then delete. Just in case anything slipped through.
