What do you do if some spamming dickhead decides to forge their headers to make it look like all the crap they’re sending is coming from your domain?
I’ve already put a help ticket in with my hosting provider reporting the problem, and I’m archiving all the bounceback messages. I’m not sure what else there is to do. I don’t really have the time right now to sift through all these messages trying to track the culprit(s) down.

Just got an email reply from tech support
Gee, you think? Okay so I didn’t use the phrase “Open Relay” in my email to them, but I’d figured as much out on my own.
Sorry, not really mad at DH or the tech support guy that replied to my message. I’m just frustrated with the situation, and the reply feels a bit like a paroting back of the message I sent them earlier this afternoon.
You can’t do anything about it. That’s the sad truth. 🙁
Eh, you could try to fight them, you could possibly figure out what relay they’re using and try to contact that host and ask them to tighten up a bit. I know they could just move on to another relay somewhere else, but eventually… if everyone actually did something about it, they’d run out of places to use as an open relay (ah to dream)
