We recently got a Barracuda Box (which is great by the way), and are using it 
as our SMTP smart host relay for incoming and outgoing mail from and to the 
outside world, respectively.  We are getting hit with a HUGE amount of messages 
that are just empty (no TO:, no SUBJECT:, no FROM:, nothing)  To give you an 
idea of just how many we are getting, we have 250 users and since I set up the 
new spam box last night (15 hours ago), we have received over 80,000 messages!  
Most of which were blocked…  My question is – Is this some sort of continued 
attack our domain is under?  If so, what steps can I take to help fix, or slow 
down, this problem? 


ANY Advice at all would be greatly appreciated as this stuff is killing us!!!
