To the OP
A tip for curing your own problem - remove your catchall. Only allow
incoming email and bounces to valid in-use addresses - not to an
infinite number of unused addresses. Repeat after me "Catchalls are
lazy !!! " :)
Catchalls are a spammer's best friend and contribute greatly to the
internet's spam problem AND to the increasingly harsh attempts by ISPs
and other mail providers to reduce their load and spam throughput.
Not to mention the slow lingering death of services that provide a
catchall that can be forwarded.
You used a real domain name in your original post !! Anyone
marking your post as spam using your criteria would have blacklisted
that unfortunate domain.
