F*ckity F*ck F*ck F*ck

E-mail is dead.
spam-c07.jpg In the last two hours, I’ve received over 100 bounced email notifications, because some asshole spammer decided to send out hundreds, if not thousands of unwanted messages advertising “Ho`w to b’uild your own busines’s we,bsite” using return addresses in my domain. The bounce messages are coming to me because I use a catch-all email box to get mail on my domain. These messages are not easy to block, because each one is going to a different address– each a different random combination of 7 letters.
If there’s any good way to deal with this problem using either spamassasin or procmail recipies, I’d appreciate hearing about that method. I can’t figure out a good way to filter out these bounce messages. Because all use a different address at my domain, I can’t simply send all mail to that address to /dev/null. Because I don’t want to filter out all bounce messages, I can’t filter based on the subject line. I don’t want to give up using the catch-all into my primary mailbox, since I use a large number of different email addresses depending on with whom I am corresponding.
