Deceptive Spam from "Dreamhost Support"


#1

Someone is bouncing spam to all the Dreamhost mail users pretending to be from Dreamhost and asking for passwords. I can forward the email to an Admin if you’d like…. kind of annoying and not sure if it’s tied to the Junk Mail / Mail lag problems today…

Well, I doubt this’ll be news to you, but that’s definitely not us! Chances are that it’s being sent from a spoofed address, though, so it’s unlikely that there’s much we can do about it (besides tell you to ignore it).
