Getting spam from myusername@myserver.DREAMHOST.COM


#1

Hi there,
I’m getting lots of SPAM (some claiming I can get a loan) from myusername@myserver.dreamhost.com. I wrote couple mails to support@dreamhost.com… explaining the situation, but my ticket had been erased manually ( got the survey, but no answer from support) what’s up? looks very funky, please advice.

Thanks

If it’s literally what you typed… i.e. @myserver.dreamhost.com then you are just reading typical spam that has forged address. Specifically myserver.dreamhost.com doesn’t appear to have any DNS records. Sadly email is very forgeable.

Post the full headers of the message, then we might be able to tell you more.
