I've had a huge increase in bounces from people spoofing many of my
customers' domains. Nothing new, every 3 or 6 months I get a flood of
these. I have noticed an increase in the amount of spam passing through
my filters though. Over the last few days I'd say where I'd average 2
or 3 spams in my inbox, I'm seeing 6-10. Still not bad.
