I've got spam filtering horror story that might fall into a different
category of stupidity.
As you see, I have the domain goldmark.org. The MXes point to my hosting
service, and particularly to a machine cypress.he.net. Mail from there
was (until this incident) forwarded to my local ISP, uia.net.
Well, I get a lot of spam to my various goldmark.org addresses, all of
which get forwarded to my ISP bound email address where I'd fetch it.
One day last week I started to get phone calls and faxes from around the
world telling me that I'm bouncing mail. It turned out that uia.net saw
all of this spam coming to me from cypress.he.net and blocked that host.
