Over the last few months I’ve seen a lot of spam being generated with the From: address being my own email address.
Any email that uses this seems to just slip through Spamassassign with no problem at all and I have no idea how to block / stop this from happening. (I’m a photographer who likes running their own web / email server - so I’m no SysAdmin wizard!)
I’ve religously checked that I’m not an “open relay” etc.
Any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated. Example oh header supplied at end.
