Are you running any type of Spam software on your network?  If not, I'd
start off by purchasing one.  We use GFI and are quite impressed by it
as it works with AD.

Subject: [exchangelist] Some Advice Please
Sensitivity: Private

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
