SPAM email activity

Once again SPAM email activity has picked up -- I'm currently getting 600 emails a day that are mainly "Undeliverable..." or "Returned Mail..." notices from Japanese email addresses (e.g., to  Because these include the original Japanese email ... that amounts to 200MB of SPAM today!

Evidently, someone has started to post even more Spam emails, using as the return email address.  The full email address is usually a random jumble of letters, followed by the domain.  I am not sending these emails!

Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be any way for me to stop this.  I can assure you that I'm not the source of the spam (for one thing, I don't speak or write Japanese!).

While 95% of the SPAM messages are automatically filtered into my junk mail box, unfortunately a few emails from customers end up there too -- so if I don't respond to a request for help, probably your email was deleted.  Please post here in the forum if you want to be sure to get my attention.

If anyone knows of anything I can do to stop the sender, please let me know.  Unfortunately, it is trivial to forge the return address on a spam email (and there is no verification prior to delivery), so it appears that I just have to put up with this...
