Is my email being used for spam?


#1

a few times a day ill have an email in my inbox from the postfix program saying that my email wasnt recieved by any number of poker sites. now, i know im not sending these out personally and i have no idea how its being done.

at the same time i started to get these i was having spambots adding themselves to my phpbb forum but i have since moved to SMF yet i still get these emails. does anyone know what could be going on?

nothing to worry about. that is quite usual. spammers are using your email-address as from-address for their mails, so the error messages come back to your address.
these things happen from time to time and AFAIK there’s nothing you can do about it.

this does not mean that your mail server is compromised!
