Is there a lower life form than spammers? I don’t think so.

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.
