Spam email from my own domain

Issue encountered

Users are receiving spam emails that seem to come from their own domain.


Some spam emails contain a fake 'SMTP FROM' email address consisting of the same domain as the recipient. This may seem as if the email is coming from a local user.


Follow these steps:

1. Enable Sender Policy Framework from within SpamRazer anti-spam filter, to block emails originating from spoofed addresses. For more information refer to SpamRazer.

2. Create an SPF record for your domain. For more information refer to

3. Ensure that SpamRazer is configured to run at a higher priority than the Whitelist module. For more information refer to Sorting anti-spam filters by priority.
