SPAM Addressing Question?

Tags:
Microsoft Exchange
We recently began getting messages (SPAM) that have a legitimate address in the Send To field. These messages however will get delivered to various individuls in the organization, despite only one address appearing in that Send To field. As an example, a message addressed to john.smith@acme.com will be delivered to everybody in the organization whose first name is John. Does anybody know how they are accomplishing that and if there is a solution to prevent it?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Select the option for “Full Name Lookup”. This could solve your problem. It won’t allow your server to resolve who the email is for, the addresses must match exactly.

    Not off the top of my head with the info provided. I dislike Spammers... and I spend a fair portion of my day warding it off for my employer. If you would like, you could send me three of the offending emails with their header information. Just because I really dislike Spammers I'll do what I can to track the root offender and send you the procedure I use to do it. These people make our jobs harder for no reason. That always gets under my skin. What I can offer you without any further information are some sources that you can use to track your SPAM offender. These sites, when used properly with the header info from the emails themselves, can often be used to track the Spammer down to their ISP itself, and then you can lodge a complaint directly to their admin staff. Often you can get their ISP to drop them entirely. www.arin.net www.spamcop.net www.godaddy.com Personally, I wouldn't give out that kind of header info to a stranger and an outsider, but my offer to help stands. Otherwise, I hope those sites will help you track them down yourself. Good luck and good hunting.
