10/07 2003 – Is there something more awful than to open up your inbox just to see it cluttered with mails titled Returned mail: User unknown from senders like Mail Delivery Subsystem? That’s what’s happening to me right now.
Someone is using my domain to send out v.i.a.g.r.a spam to a whole bunch of aol.com addresses. And I can’t say I like it. The company used for this activity is midco.net, that unfourtunately has a site where I can’t find any info whatsoever of how to report it either. (I don’t much care to call their 1-800 number from Sweden.)
So if you recieved one of these, please don’t hold me or my host responsible. Blaim midco.net who lets their users spam with faked adresses.
This is what they look like:

Even though I am not remotely amused, I kind of like the cling of the name Napoleon Potts…
