STOP THE SPAM, Digital Ocean!!

For several weeks now, it’s been NON-STOP spam from DO’s mail servers, do they do anything at this point to secure their MX network?

I’ve filled out abuse reports, emailed, forwarded, send it to NOC, ABUSE, LEGAL and Jarland with zero help and only one (1) response.

Looks like it’s time to get the .GOV involved as I’m tired of it.

I’ve had 3 more SPAM emails come through as I’m typing this… No joke.



We have the same issue, contant spamming from Digital Ocean thatis coming on the same 4 pages through Yandex search engine.

How can we stop this? Thanks

Hey @MadMan1, are these emails all coming from addresses?

20 spam emails from DO servers / clients today alone. Good grief.

Here’s the same old canned response they send back every time, which says to me, “Enjoy that SPAM that we allow and condone to be sent!!!”

"Thank you for your submission. A member of the Trust & Safety team will review the details as soon as possible. If appropriate, the information will be forwarded to the associated customer in its entirety.

Per the original post:


“I’ve filled out abuse reports, emailed, forwarded, send it to NOC, ABUSE, LEGAL and Jarland with zero help and only one (1) response.”

I’ve now been taking the time to do their online abuse submissions and it’s slowed down the spam just a tad. Crackerjack outfit we have here [Sarcasm]!

No, they are coming from DO’s mail servers, at least according to
