Too Much Spam


I don't get too much spam, even though my email address is all over the Internet with no fancy wysz [at] mac DOT com protection. This is thanks to .Mac's filtering. Any spam that I do receive is usually caught by Mail's filter, but it is still annoying because I do check my junk mail folder.

To help Apple out, I report all junk mail to by forwarding it with the full header fields intact. For the past couple of days, I've received this error after forwarding an unsolicited email:

Your message cannot be delivered to the following recipients:

Recipient address: spam@ims-ms-daemon
Original address:
Reason: Over quota

I didn't know that Apple had a quota on their own accounts. I guess the spam analysis has been backed up lately because of that worm which infected Windows computers last weekend. Thanks, Windows users.
