Re: Don't use <companyname>@yourdomain...

Spammers have some odd name generation strategies. Here's two entries from today's server log:

15/12/2014 12:32:42.539 - Client:85.155.129.122 State:RcptTo Action:Reject Rule:Reject general crap Size:0 MAILFROM:Do_Not_Reply@vitacress.co.uk Recipients:(ce5dd7553@xxxxx)

Clearly some spammers have way too much CPU time available to them.
