Spam spoofing

As we know, some people out there use our email addresses to send out spam, which invariably means that our email addresses get blacklisted. Is there anything that can be done to stop this please?

I wish there was, but spoofing an email address is soooo easy.

only by the stupid scripts that can’t tell where the email really came from.

The smart blacklist scripts don’t check the from address at all as it doesn’t mean anything. Instead they look at the path the email has travelled to work out where it really came from.

Thanks for input. Unfortunatley, there are some stupid scripts out there.

People just need to learn not to use the stupid scripts as they potentially have everyone except the actual spammers blacklisted.
