Apparently, some piece of nasty software has been hanging out on my server, sending out spam from my domain. As a result, a lot of my outgoing emails are getting blocked or bounced back because I’m now on some sort of Spammer Blacklist.

I’m working on getting taken off of it – and trying to find out from my web host if they know anything. This may take a while, as this is not necessarily my strong suit – so if you’re expecting email from me, be sure to add me to your “trusted list” or check your spam folder to see if anything I sent you was accidentally trashed.

I’m betting this has something to do with that recent server attack, but what do I know? I’m just a hiking blogger, trying to write a hiking blog and instead dealing with bots. Blurg!
