I might say my mailserver, but it's on a shared host (rather than just an
ISP), so I have some control (e.g. I can create/remove mailboxes and
forwarders) but I can't choose DNSBLs or block individual IP addresses,
I do use SC to filter my incoming mail, but I forward it straight back to a
POP3 mailbox on my webhost.
Although I can easily filter out the spew using message rules it's the
principle of the thing. This organisation has an infected computer sending
email under my address to email addresses within its own organisation.
Their mail filter detects the virus and therefore floods me with their crap
to tell me that they have sent me a virus.
They need to be educated - I can ignore this easily enough, but I don't want
to have to!
