Well with the large DDOS attacks going on at the moment, wouldn't surprise me if those same systems are being used as a mass spam platform.

Oh just a heads up. VF is aware of this and is taking steps. It was hitting some catchall addresses that route to my staff address so I got a bunch of it myself.





Please note: I have a professional bias towards Vodafone.
