View Full Version : Increase in MobileMe spam in last couple of days?

Yesterday I got back from a 9 hour shift (checked email and deleted any spam before I went to work) at work to discover 17 (!) messages that Mail had marked as spam. I deleted them last night, and this morning I woke to find another 8 messages marked as spam. All of them are going to my @mac/me.com email address.

I normally only get two or three, if that.

Has anyone recently been bombarded? Or is it just me? :(

My gmail is packed full, but it gets it all.

Mobile me, i never get any spam.

Maybe someone put your email into a few dodgy websites.

I generally use gmail for relatively unknown websites, and for more trustworthy ones like apple and fatso (think netflix), i use my mobile me email.

Seems to work.

Have to confess for the last 4 or 5 days, I've been getting 3 or 4 a day to my normally reliable .mac account...normally never get very many...

It seems like it was just a little spike overnight. I barely got any all day today.

Weird.

I'd love to somehow reverse-engineer a spam email to see where the bastards got my address from.

I haven't received any spam for a few months, but last week I got 5 in one day, but none since then.

Mine hasn't been too bad of late. I was getting 5-6 per day about a month ago but now it is only one or two every few days (apart from that huge flurry of Commonwealth Bank spam two weeks ago).
