Hey guys,


Currently got a catchall setup on my email. Using my own domain that is hardly known anywhere so it isnt a first guess for spam bots.
Recently in the last few days I have been receiving about 1000 spam messages a day, reaching the limit of 10,000 emails per month with mail gun fairly promptly.
Its just general spam from every corner of the web. I have enabled the spam filtering now with mailgun and will see how it goes but i am still seeing spam show up in my inbox.

You can see its a big jump from what it was.
Lets hope it isnt just MailGuns way of cornering their users to purchase a premium package..

How does one stop mailgun from retrying these messages that gmail is filtering?

After enabling the spam filter on mailgun its dropped back to normal. Half of our internets traffic surely must be porn and spam email...

Why do you use mailgun for those incoming email´╝č Personally I think mailgun is good for sending, not receiving. You may try zoho. It's totally free.
