Spammers now forging my email

    ok so lately I've been taking a hard line with casino spam. People are are sending me casino spams are being reported. Suddenly today I got about 50 bounced back emails because someone's using my email as a 'reply-to' mail to send out porn spam. :mad: I don't think it's coincidence but maybe I'm just paranoid.

    However, in the meantime I'm being flooded with all these bounced back mails. I just went to chat with my ISP, they said change my email password and run a virus scan just in case it's actually coming from my account, but I don't think it is, I think they're just spoofing the reply-to address.

    I'm wondering if there's anything else I can do? I'm thinking about just changing my email address anyhow and these stupid spammers can talk to themselves, I'm so bloody sick of these scumbags. Anyone have any advice?

    Chayton,

    Change your email password, make it complicated. It may take a week or more for the bouncing emails to stop but they will. I've seen this happen and changing the password will correct the issue. :thumbsup:
