>>There are two ways to go here -

* Nullroute or bogus out in your resolvers the DNS servers for this
domain --> two problems here.  One is that the spammer doesn't use in the smtp envelope, and second, he abuses open
redirectors like yahoo's <<

There is another option, create an email filter and block any email that
includes the text ".biz/" in any email.

That will do two things, it will stop the spams from being received in the
first place and it will cause one heck of a headache for the .biz domain so
they clean up their act and deal with their problems.
