email and Spam …

My apologies if you’ve emailed me and I haven’t responded when you expected.

It’s not that I’m being deliberately rude, but my inbox has been cloggingup with Spam (unsolicited bulk emails) emails – up to 200/day. This meant that there wasn’t enough space for real mail.

My hosting service have worked with the detection/rejection levels (initially some valid mails were getting flagged), and I think we’ve got the level right now, and we’re now deleting identified Spam as soon as it hits the inbox. I don’t see it, so I don’t open it.

I have nothing but contempt for spammers.

These scum have sent out mails “spoofing” one of my domains, and as a result, I’ve now covered these with SPF validation.

I’m sorry if you get one of dodgy mails, but it’s nothing to do with me.

If you do receive Spam from this address that does pass SPF, then please let me know.

If you’re using Thunderbird for email, then the “Sender Verification Extension” can help spot the rubbish …
