IMO: No. I have had around 200 of these alerts this morning alone, most of which originate from POSTMASTER@somedomain which received email using my forged address. I can't blithely ignore the postmaster, but I'm sorely tempted to filter them. Side note: I'm seeing about a 20x increase in smtp traffic over the daily norm. -John
