We have a similar problem: someone's pumping out huge amounts of spam
through hit&run dialups (it's been various) and using the domain of a
customer of ours as envelope from.
After we collected 5 GB in bounces, we've been forced to point the
domains MX to nevernever-land; anyone have a reasonable idea that doesn't
involve a separate mailer machine that prefilters that domains mail?
The good people are a rather small customer and they definitely don't
deserve nor want to pay for the traffic costs that would run up, not to
speak of other costs.
