Spamming From Your Domain Name
People have asked me to speculate on why a domain name of theirs could possibly be banned by Google. There are many potential reasons, but an acquaintance of mined mentioned that spam related to the domain name could potentially be a reason for banning. From what I understand, it isn’t very difficult to spoof a spam email to make it look like it came from a particular domain name. If this happens and the domain name is put on a spam list, it could potentially lead to other negative ramifications.
One possible way to see if your domain name is being used for spamming is to create an email account with your hosting company, and have it act as a “catch all” for any email that comes to any email address associated with the domain name. While your inbox may become inundated with spam if it is being used deviously, you will know a potential reason for banning.
I am not an expert at this so I don’t know what you can do if you find out that your domain name is being used for spam, but at least you will know. Since I am not an attorney, I can’t give a legal opinion on this, but I would imagine there are legal issues if you receive a confidential email that was intended for another recipient. I really don’t know the law related to this, so it’s better to consult an attorney if you are receiving emails that appear to be confidential in nature and intended for someone else.
