    Today my mailbox has been flooded with delivery failure notices from
    yahoo.co.kr.

    It looks like some spamming **** is using my e-mail address as their return
    address.

    Just to make it really fun they appearing to be using an ISP, **** knows
    where, called lattelekom.lv who just send me automatic delivery failures on
    e-mails to their [email protected] and [email protected] addresses (annoyingly enough, the
    failure notice comes from , telling me that
    isn't there).

    Anyone got any bright ideas on how to nail this twat?

    Anyway, here's the original message, TIA ...

    I seem to remember that this sort of behaviour was caused by a virus, but
    the virus is not on your machine.

    You can expect a visit from the NSA soon.
    Cuba is lovely this time of year.

    ****. I've been getting a rash of these on two of my email addresses,
    some random names at a domain I have and also my work address. Guess
    I'm really fucked.

    Cheers Doc, the flood does seem to have died down.

    Out of interest, I thought that there was some sort of convention that ISPs
    had to run an [email protected] and a [email protected] address

    In the past I've dealt with a couple who haven't, but messages to their
    upstream providers seems to have sorted things out.
