If you are getting spam from an @linuxgems.com address this morning, they’re not really from us. Somebody has been sending emails from various @linuxgems.com addresses that don’t even exist. I know about it because all the bounces come to me and there have been dozens of them.
There isn’t a lot that can be done to avoid falsely being used as a from address on spam, but there is one thing I can do, and I’m going to do it: As soon as possible I will be migrating to a better hosting company and setting up the appropriate DNS records to authorize only my IP address to send email. I shouldn’t have to pay extra to prevent criminals from fraudulently using my domain in their emails, but I’ll do it anyway to put a stop to this nonsense.
My apologies to anyone that got a forged email today.
