The Running Realtor: January 2008

A blend of ramblings about Real Estate & Running around New Haven County and the Connecticut Shoreline

How do I stop a Junk Mailer from using my Address?

Welcome to Tee'd Off Tuesday... This week I noticed a new junk mailer making their way into my inbox and they are using my email address. Most of us become accustom to seeing trash but this is the first time my email as been associated with the junk. How do I combat this theft of my address?

The first message showed up last Thursday and then four more hit on Friday.  Hoped if I ignored the jackass they would move on fast so my domain name is left untarnished as a mass emailer of junk. 

Reviewing the full headers associated with each email reveals they are filtered through two separate foreign accounts each using a different IP address and two return paths. Neither makes sense to me because if a person hits reply the email comes to me : Dan@CummingsTeam.com

If this continues I'd like to know who to contact so my name is not linked with junk mail.  Any Suggestions?
