I noticed this afternoon that someone has chosen to use my old email address to spam people. I got the first hint when a bounce back came to me saying it was stuck in a loop – it was addressed to my old address. Checking my spam filter shows there are heaps of returned messages there. Such a pain because it wasn’t me sending them and I hate people thinking I’m responsible for them.
I was checking my stats for the day and noticed a big spike in hits today – I wondered what brought that on? I checked the links and find that a large number have called up my old domain – which is housed with this current domain. Perhaps people are checking out the domain of the email address to find out who was emailing them.
I haven’t seen the content of the email and perhaps I don’t want to, but hopefully those checking my site out will realise I don’t have a connection with whatever was sent to them. Who knows? It might bring some new clients!
