vbb should be well up to it - but there's some dodgy looking records in the database that seem incomplete which could be causing problems...

Okay

Still trying to get to the bottom of the crashing server.

Spam may be contributing, today there was 998.1 MB used (since Feb 22, 2005)


Basically

"wkr@archeire.com", "ties@archeire.com", "mailse@archeire.com", "rothkopf@archeire.com", "sadist@archeire.com" , "ljf@archeire.com"

ie the world and their mother is being appended to @archeire.com and sent in....

trying to figure out a way of killing the mail completely as setting it to rebound just seems to overload it for some reason


I am really really sorry about this as it causes me much more pain than it does you....

I hate setbacks like this just when the site was beginning to get a head of steam going....
