[Oberon] Spam problems hinder WebDAV

originally I wanted to do some work on WebDAV on the weekend beside some family things.
But this didn't work out.
Besides normal spamming (About 10-20 a day) for a while somebody flooded my forums
with spam (I think I stopped that for the moment).
Perhaps this angered the spammer. On friday I began to receive bounce messages
for spam mails which couldn't be delivered. So it seems somebody is happily
sending thousends of spam messages with an invented sender address like
john_doe at edgarschwarz.de.
Can you imagine that I'm happy when I open my mailbox and most of the mails 
are "normal" spam ?
I wonder when the forger will switch to another domain. I consider this an attack
on my domain. Because perhaps somebody out in the internet is getting a lot of
spam from john_doe at edgarschwarz.de and decides that edgarschwarz.de is a spammers
domain which should be blocked.
Nevertheless I decided to archive these bounced forged messages and to put them
online. Perhaps somebody can help me to find the forger ?
If you are curious have a look at "http://www.edgarschwarz.de/spam/"
BTW, to do this I added two small commands to Mail.Panel to allow me either to
log spam headers to a file (For normal spam) or log the complete message (For
bounced forged messages).

Cheers, Edgar
