Hi Blues, and a happy New Year

I am getting hundreds of spam using my return address.

and the spams seem to be coming from all three.

Subject varies, but most are for the sex drugs
I put a few hundred in the access file, but it's getting to be

How can i stop this?

Typical header looks like this;

Gerald. I too was getting lots of ftp and spam attacks from the 71.x.x.x
(Verizon) ip's. I finally had to put them into the firewall to get it to

I know that spam can still be sent, no matter what is in the firewall, but
it did stop all the other attacks.

Some of the attacks actually came from an overseas address, routed through a
Candian address and then down to Verizon East.
