A spammer is forging my address in the 'from' line of his spam. As a result, my email address is being blacklisted in some places, and I've received about a thousand bounce messages in the last hour.

Update: From a first look, the mail is coming from 126.96.36.199 (for which there is no meaningful whois contact data) and it's advertising a web site owned by this owner:

But that doesn't really help much…
Second Update: the flood has stopped, or something upstream of me has stopped it.
Third update: Not. Getting. Any. Mail.
Fourth update (@ 11:30pm, which is to say several hours later): New mail is now getting through. No idea what happend to any mail sent in last four hours or so except that I didn't get it.
