Can anyone help me?
I have tried support, but they only send a short note saying that I have spammed. They will not reply any further E-mails from me. I can't rectify my ways, if I don't know what I did. I have not used the e-mails for SPAMming. In fact I was SPAMmed with hundreds of E-mails daily from the day I opened the E-mail without even using this "NEW" E-mail address.

A. Whoever hijacked or spoofed your email address and used it as a "reply to: address" are victims of a new from of harassment in which fake or boogie messages was sent-out posing as the original owner of the email address by spoofing--usually done by dissatisfied or fired employees, competitors, pranksters, junk mailers, provocateurs or due to someone computer infected with "spam zombies or spambot" and your email address is in their address book.


I signed up for a couple of FREE E-mail
One of the "NEW" addresses immediately started filling up with hundreds of SPAM E-mails, as I had not even used it yet. The next day the free email address quit working. No warning. No advice. Nothing. I contacted the support guy, and all I rec'd was "deleted for spamming" and NO further explanation. Now they will not even reply my email.


100% effective.
I recommend it.

A. Time is of economic value
. if you are using a "free" email ISP's service--as far as they are concern--it is cheaper to terminate your account without notification on the assumption that you are spamming (and that you can always create another new account).


My email address is being used by some spammer as his reply-to address... and I'm getting tons of bounce-backs... and I'm afraid that my email address will be blacklisted.

A. Whoever hijacked or spoofed your email address and use it as a reply to: address--victims of these new from of harassment in which fake or boogie messages was sent-out posing as the original owner of the email address by spoofing--are usually done by dissatisfied or fired employees, competitors, pranksters, junk mailers, provocateurs or due to someone computer infected with spam zombies or spambot and your email address is in their address book.

Most mail server would have blocked your email domain by now (if not black listed) that's one of the reasons you are getting all those bounced email.

It is quite a lot of hassle for both party concern, since "time" is of high economic value and you contact the mail server admin--they in turn automate their respond--if they respond at all.

Get a NEW email domain to send outgoing mail with your OLD email as a Reply to:  .... and if your NEW email gets hijacked again, at least you get to know that someone out-there is having a grudge against you.


I got SpamCopped a couple weeks ago.
Interesting thing is, the email that was reported was a confirmation email. Probably it is the result of a Klez-infected machine, so the person reporting it may actually not have asked for the subscription.

A. Someone cracks your mail server, you're a spam source.

B. There's a virus/trojan that turns infected Windows machines into spam factories and you could be spamming right now without even knowing it... your computer maybe infected with the following virus/trojan.

Proxy-Guzu or Jeem Trojans that hijack ordinary PCs without the owner knowledge by installing built-in SMTP spam zombies Trojans to spam.

Klez virus, for example, select random email address from an infected PCs and insert the email address into the "From:" and "To:" fields, making it appear that someone else has sent the message.

W32.Yaha.P@mm worm/virus that email itself to all of the contacts in your Windows Address Book, MSN Messenger, .NET Messenger, Yahoo Pager, and in all the files whose extensions contain the letters HT.

The email message sent-out contains a randomly chosen subject line, message, and attachment. The virus also attempts to terminate antivirus and firewall processes, and then does a mass mailing. It does modify your registry, and if successful makes you vulnerable to others trying to access your computer.

Basically, a virus infects another file (it is attached to or inserts itself into it). Virus usually infect documents and damage program files, and can replicate itself.

Do not function as a stand alone, generally doesn't infect other files (although it can replace them) and usually spread by copying themselves via email, disks, etc. They are almost like virus and does the same kind of damages.

Usually disguise as a harmless screen saver or utility program. They don't copy or email themselves and rely on people to run or pass them around.
