Want to rant a bit, and get some opinion to make sure
I'm not out of line.
For months now my domain has been spoofed with no end
in site. Godaddy is the host and registrar.
When I first reported it to them they sent some
message to me describing what spoofing is, etc.
I would send them bouncebacks and get no response. Of
course, I would complain about the lack of response.
Finally, I get this response from them:
"We have received your reply.
We want to thank you for sending us the bounce back
message headers. We have researched your issue and
unfortunately we cannot prevent spoofing, nor can any
other ISP. We want to apologize for the trouble you
have experienced. SPF can help reduce the amount of
spoofing but ultimately spoofing is a criminal
activity and the only way to prevent it is to pursue
the offender legally.
If the office can assist you with further comments or
concerns, let us know."
I'm wondering. Is this just a brushoff? Are the
companies that can do better than this? Godaddy
allows you to publish SPF records, which I'm still
trying to learn.
