    Exclamation Apologises for downtime!

    Server admin has dealt with the situ

    Is basically a robot that latches onto websites details etc and sends out spam or fake emails to anyone and everyone..

    I doubt your website will be in danger as no offence doubt you will get the amount of traffic we get.

    The bounce has 3 websites on the server, us, dniprokids and irish league forums and the traffic is huge.

    If you had seen the dniprokids forums last night you'll know what i mean..

    They had 4 pages of spam and it was not nice stuff at all..

    Anyway, many thanks ...I shall remain vigilant just in case.
    Would it show up in my webaliser if the spam bots attacked?

    They get a hold of the email a friend link and send out hundreds upon hundreds of emails,so if you have a email a friend link watch out

    Look out for any addresses ending in the following.

    @web.de @ajiex.info @best-ringtones-online.info @mail.ru @medicinese.org @list.ru @bestboyfilms.org @telegraf.by @spivare.com @elite1000.org @uscreditdepot.com @pokushai.org @googlemail.com @inmail24.com @searchproducts.info @list.ru @etradeoil.com

    These are all usually spam bots, spamming viagria,porn etc

    How do you stop them J. I have been getting spam email re viagra / best shares to invest in etc and I have no idea how to go about cancelling these.
    They're gone, not here, forgotten

    Are you using outlook express ? Outlook you can block sender

    Or webmail ? Have no idea as yet, there is a boxtrapper but its disabled just now till we investigate

    I get over 100 a day on the main admin account

    I'll look at banning the list noted above from the email client

    Yes I use outlook express. If I can block them I will because I get around 5 a day and they do my napper in mate. I've had a look and I assume I go to Action > Junk email > add sender to blocked list so thats what I will do. Cheers J

    5 a day!
    Lucky you.

    I have a spam filter on and I still get about 25 sneaking through the filter.
    When I check the spam trap there has to be at least another 30 there every day.
    Nightmare.
