I'm glad that I'm not the only one with these problems! Not that I like having the problem, but I thought there must be some kind of undetectable Trojan on my system letting the spammers know when I add a domain or user. Misery like company I guess. I did happen to talk to DigiHost yesterday and

I have no practical solution but you would need something that parses your SMTP logfile in realtime (like unixtool's tail or the new baretail) and track occurences of invalid user messages. If there are more then X connection attempts from one single IP in Y minutes causing an invalid user log
