Yep, Steve has sent me 4 in the last hour - 3 for Doncaster and 1 for Edinburgh.

Sadly I feel very lonely - I've got none from Steve !!!

I've only got two today - one Doncaster & one Edinburgh - but neither mention Steve.

I've actually been able to reduce this particular spam flow. PM me.

Thank you Plusnet, grrrrrrrrrr ...
Haha, I don't monitor mine as such but from time to time when browsing the server logs I see a few I recognise. There's one in particular that I blacklisted over fifteen years ago that still makes a frequent appearance. I suppose that's going to be my lasting contribution to the internet.

The reason I mostly only shop from the big boys now is because most of the independents managed to leak my email address eventually. Sad.

A bit like my landline - for days now, I'm getting up to about 10 or 12 phone calls a day from "an automated message from Amazon". They start about 09.01 in the morning and generally never last beyond 2pm or so.
Get a TrueCall unit. You'll still be called but the machine will deal with them without you ever noticing. I occasionally see it's 'in use' light light up but after a few seconds it goes dark again and the caller goes off to bother someone else smile

What makes me laugh are bouts of actual hack attempts on my server. Every now and again it will come under attack from someone actually trying to log on via IMAP or the website using a dictionary attack. And when I say 'dictionary attack' I've seen user names like:
dfgfdg
rfyrty56674763t
jhguyk
fghshstye46
4hdhj
tgdjd...

And one time the quite hilarious
GGGGGGGGGGGG
HHHHHHHHHHHHH
IIIIIIIIIII...

I suppose they have to start somewhere. But my server is setup with an escalating naughty step and after three failed attempts the IP address is blocked for three months. A drop in the ocean and it doesn't do it for IPv6 but hopefully it deters a few of them.

Just as a side question, are anyone's all from [email protected]random domain? Mine are. Given they are all on the same topic, apartments, it wouldn't be surprising.

Just checked mine in Mailwasher recycle bin, the Doncaster ones start with [email protected] different domains, [email protected] different domains [email protected] different domains [email protected] diffferent domains and [email protected] different domains

Not the domain smile. We know those are all over the place. I mean before the @. All mine are from "steve", whatever the domain, and others have seen the same.
