My mail problems tapered off over the last month and ceased entirely for the last few weeks. Today I come home after six hours to 584 spam messages in my mailbox (in the deleted folder because I tell OE to delete anything with that address) and 1894 messages in Postini's spam filter.
Luckily the web interface has an email addy for my provider. I emailed them. In the meantime 25 more messages turned up at postini and 5 in my mailbox.
Now I begin to wonder if it's personal. Or do random people truly get botted in this quantity?
