Scott, this morning emails to your address listed at E-C.net are being bounced with the warning "mailbox full".

I've noticed that too for a few weeks now.
Moderator Notifications bounced back too.

Before calling SBC, went to the E-Mail management area to see what might be sitting on the server.
Sure enough, >100 messages of 100KB and larger sitting there!
They were from that latest pain in the butt WORM that has been clogging up everyone's E-Mail servers.
The subjects were the typical "Re: That Movie" and similar.

Deleted all the baloney lingering around in the mailbox, called the E-Mail Robot some eight digit words
(Binary swear words.....1001101 111010 10011 1110 1100001 and so forth), then logged out.

Sure enough - about 10 seconds later - get the New Mail "Chime", and filtered to the ECN / Moderator Reports folder for the first time in weeks... a Moderator report!!!

Yahoo!!!

The report was to the above reply I made earlier.

Mail is once again flowing in at an alarming rate!

Scott,
I received your e-mail as well, but my replies were also being bounced with mailbox full.

I've not had anything sent falsely under your name though, as you suspected might have happened.
