How do I fine the source of SPAMing
Posted on 2010-09-13
My emails from my home location (Orange broadband) have been blocked by an organisation called Baracudda Central, who seem to monitor email traffic using some kind of algorythm which is all automated.
At first I though I might have been dealt a "rougue IP" from my ISP so reset my router to collect a new IP address.
This worked, but only a few days later same thing happened again !
So, I checked all 3 PC's in our home for latest MS updates, active firewall and good antivirus with clean scans (I use EST NOD32), and because my son uses his PC for gaming, instant messaging & such I completely re-installed his O/S (it was running slow anyway !), I also reset my router back to factory defaults and re-entered all my ISP details, and created a new WEP key for wireless access.
All to no avail, twice more I have been blocked.
Any ideas how to monitor each PC to find the source of the SPAM which I now have to conclude is real (Baracudda central can't be that bad can they ? )
Any advice on "next steps" would be appreciated !
