STOP <Bleep> SPAM

How can you stop SPAM that is directed to your email account but to make matters worse that is from your email address on a Server / cPanel ? I need to stop this SPAM that I was told originated from SitePoint and now it won’t stop coming each day, arrrgh.

And it had just began to start a few weeks ago, I don’t know if someone got access to my account but there is not much to do with it so they just are sending me SPAM, you’re typical Viagra / other medication drugs emails.

Who told you it originated from Sitepoint? Do you have any reason to think that it’s true that your email was exposed from here? I wouldn’t start shouting that Sitepoint’s e-mail addresses have been exposed unless you have proof to back it up, because it’s a very serious thing to be saying and could have implications for a wide number of users. It’s very easy to fake the “from” header in email, is SitePoint mentioned in the email or are you guessing the source?

SiberianHuskey, do you have the option set to forward all PMs you recieve to an email address? There’s been a couple of spam attacks recently so you might have had a few spam PMs which would have been forwarded to your email.

Yes I do. What can I do to stop it ?
