Reported for spam abuse

    I got an email from the abuse department telling me there was spam abuse reported against me.
    It goes on to show a copy of the original complaint and contents of an email apparently sent through my server. But it wasn't me. There are 5 domains associated with the email: stpeters.net, dollarads.com, me.com, thefunnyfox.com and migenteplace.com - none of them mine. The email is trying to impersonate an apple.com site selling MobileMe.

    I submitted a support ticket (#47487) and also replied to the KnownHost abuse department sender (Helen), but haven't heard back.

    What can one do to prevent their email server from being used by spammers? I understand the urgency in putting a stop to this activity, but will my server be shut down, or is there a solution to the problem that will prevent the members of my forum and other sites from being inconvenienced?

    Thanks,

    Jim
