I have a email address that I use with my site bulletpig.com

For this email address ([email protected]) there is a spammer for discreetdelivery.net

I keep getting over a 100 returned emails daily of spam that has been sent out and this email address used as the reply to address.

If you go to the site I have tried emailing all contact emails (with a test account I setup) and they are returned right away.

The request for hacker is to find out if there is something I can do about this.  If not then can we track them down and report them?

Regards,
Pig

Given that I work for an ISP I have a little more reach than most...let me see if I can find some info.

Filter all emails containing "discreetdelivery.net" into your email trash can.

  Or tell your ISP (if that isn't you) that you're being used as a spam reply address.  I doubt they'd do anything other than the same as what I've suggested, though.

Are you saying that they are using YOUR email address as the return address?  And that in looking at the email header you see the its coming from this discreetdelivery.net domain?

Zero,

They are using my email address as the reply to address.  The site address is in the email that they tried to send to dozens of people that bounced back to my email because it was in the reply to.

I had the same problem a couple of years ago. It sucks and I feel for you. FortunatelyEarthlink sued the balls off them. :twisted:
