Comment on my WP site with same domain name email address

    Dear WP Gurus~

    I manage about 20 WP sites. Lately (since 3.0.1 version), my clients have experienced HUGE volumes of spam. One particular piece o spam was alarming.

    A comment was left for approval on one of my sites using an email address that had the same domain name. (example: “spam@mydomain.com”).

    Does anyone have a clue as to how this could happen? I would greatly appreciate any little feedback you can offer.

    Thanks everyone,
    Z

    The email address that people leave with a comment is (unless your site is registered users only) just a free-text field. They can use any email they want there.
