First off, I’m quite sure Dreamhost doesn’t spam anybody, so this is not an accusation. I’m just wondering very much how come then that I get spam that appears to spoof Dreamhost?
I submitted this to SpamCop (because I want to bust those spammers) but I’d also like to raise the issue here to hear DH’s comments on it.
Here’s the header – I’ve replaced my domain with “mydomain.com”. Clearly it’s spam, and clearly it’s spoofed, but since DH is so incredibly keen on the non-spam frontier, how come then that they know the mail subdomain “plunder”? Am I being a noob? Admittedly, the “from” line is really weird!
