Outgoing Email Filter


My Optus email account was shut down because someone has been sending spam email purporting to be from me.

It was reinstated last night but today I have received too many "undeliverable" error emails from the Optus server.

I have created a new 'very secure' password but that hasn't stopped the phishers.

Surely Optus can filter outgoing emails to prevent email being sent from other than optus servers?

I am not happy about having my email interrupted.

I am not happy that I have a "bad reputation" because this is happening.

How can we filter - or at least prevent - our outgoing email messages so that these messages can stop being sent?

These bounced messages can take days if not weeks to clear up and its simply the way mail is handled. As far as I am aware Optus has an outgoing mail limit to prevent hackers causing severe damage.
