We had a nasty email crisis today. Some lowlife spammer sent out about 1,000,000,000 spam emails with our email address as the “reply to”. All the bounces — “Delivery failed”, “Invalid address”, “Sender must confirm address”, etc., etc., came to our box.
More than 9,000 of them were there at one point — 225MB of mail in one day, according to our ISP. The box had to be cleared out, and then we started over.
So… If you emailed us in the last twenty-four hours or so, and don’t get a reply within a couple of days, send it again (if it’s important). Some of the emails came in, but we’re probably missing a lot of others.
To add insult to injury, our satellite connection has been down most of the day.
Another lost weekend.
