They're still downloding... so far most of them look identical with a blank subject line, and a body message hawking - oh the irony - email advertising services. Definitely a brute force effort spamming messages to someWord@myDomain.com, anotherWord@myDomain.com, etc... multiplied by a robust portion of my domains
I never expected this morning that it would take several hours to check my e-mail
Oh, and according to my virus filter at least one of the messages contained a Trojan
I hope the powers that be catch this spammer and nail his yaddayadda to the wall
7:13 PM, and still downloading...
Do you receive emails from some of your websites? Do you have any type of .exe running that sends out a newsletter or promotion?
There was a time where I thought we were under a brute email spam assault. Come to find out, one of our .exe's for email promotions got stuck due to an invalid character somewhere in the email. The system didn't catch it and the emails bled out over a period of 5 hours before it was caught. All to the same recipient. Got us Blacklisted too. :(
Instead of downloading all these messages, why don't you delete them on the server ?
My thoughts exactly.
I had similar problems while using my website mail service until I switched to Gmail.
Now I can quickly delete any problems BEFORE downloading to my computer.
