Totally off topic, but if you feel the need to shutdown an address because of spam, don't bother opening it up again. Once spammers have an address, they'll never stop sending to it. And they never see the bounce messages, since all their "from" addresses are forged anyway.

Only way to stop spam is to get a mail package that supports filtering...
