Re: Emails sending automatically with my domain name

That sounds like your email just got hacked the old fashioned way, via a link or something. Do you run your email server from your hosting using something like cPanel email?

If so, first thing to do is make sure everyone using it changes their password to something that's not easy to guess. I would suggest using a password generator.

 

Then, call into GD and see if they can tell you which email is causing the issue. You may want to put some sort of firewall on it. I know you're currently using Cloudflare, so if you're on the free version, I'd upgrade.

 

It sounds like a simple email hack, though.

Re: Emails sending automatically with my domain name

Hi @Gulraiz,

 

Welcome to the Community!

Are you receiving bounce error for some of these emails sent? Your email address may have been "spoofed", not hacked. Your first action - as @MrVapor advised - is to change the password on your account. The second will be to add an SPF record to your domain, so the party using your relays to send these emails will no longer have access to use them. You may use the instructions here.

I always forget spoofing. Maybe it's the name. "Spoofing." Sounds made up. 😆

 

As always, thanks for the assist!
