How do I prevent spoofing of my domain name?
Posted on 2006-05-09
I'm getting quite a large amount of bounce-back emails from various webservers, because apparently some spammer got a hold of my domain name and is sending out spam spoofed as a fake account on my domain.
I can think of a few ways to prevent receiving these bounce-backs, but I was wondering if there is anything I could do that would absolutely prevent people from using my domain name as a fake email address. I'm not too happy about my name being put into probably thousands of spam messages.
I am also contacting my hosting provider as well, but I was wondering if there was anything that I could do myself, perhaps with a setting on the webserver itself? Something I should ask the webserver techs?
