My email account seems to be sending out several messages a minute - all of which are getting flagged as spam (with the odd bounceback). Obviously this is concerning. I've followed some instructions to add an SPF record, but as yet it hasn't done a thing. Worried that unless something is sorted I'm going to get flagged as a spammer myself.

Hey there @minthr,


First things first, change all your passwords. All of them.


Second, you might want to run a security scan on your site. Either they've hacked your email or you have malware.

Hi @minthr. Sorry to hear this is happening for you. Just to clarify, while I'd agree that following @MrVapor's suggestions is a wise course of action, if the mail is only being spoofed, you may not be able to do much more. Take a look at the discussion about spoofing in this post for more information.
