    Default 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.

    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).
