I did a bit of "email cleaning" across several of my domains today. I previously had catch-all email addresses set up, which it turns out, wasn't the best idea. Sure, in theory, they're great. You get all email sent to your domain, so even if someone makes a typo, it's all good (excluding the domain name, of course). However, there's a big problem with this. It's called spam.
I wish I would have kept exact numbers, but I probably deleted upwards of 10,000 spam or otherwise unwanted emails. Some of the email were output from my crontab, which was more or less an oversite on my part, but for the most part, they were spam email. Off the domain I run for my sister, we deleted over 31 MB of unwanted email. Yikes!
