I was very pleased to finally get my new SIMS receiving e-mail and had sent 2 test e-mails to my SIMS account through my ISP. Almost immediately I received 3 or 4 spam addressed to my SIMS account. I was stunned. How do they do it?

I haven't set up the SIMS anti-spam facility yet as I am slowly configuring SIMS and my network.

Warm regards

Check your logs.

It's possible that if you used a "dictionary" word or name for the account name that it was address harvested.

SIMS has anti-address harvesting capabilities, but spammers may be getting wise to that kind of protection and spacing their harvest attempts out more.
