Starting today, I've been receiving the following message when I try to send myself an e-mail from my work to my BH e-mail:
I have tried twice today, once @ 9am and again at 11am and have received this message both times. I'm concerned that someone or something may be sending spam to my mailbox and causing me to reach this limit. The problem is, my personal e-mail isn't very important, but I am expecting a business related e-mail from a customer sometime today. Someone sending spam to me is beyond my control. I have a yahoo.com account that I use when I am concerned that passing my e-mail address out may solicit spam... thus, my valid e-mail accounts through BH should receive very limited spam, and I haven't received any spam that I'm aware of from my BH accounts, that at least I couldn't have myself removed from the Spammer's list.(BEGIN)

What can I do to get rid of this problem. If someone is spamming me, I definitely don't want to just let it all in, either. I would like to find a way to find who or what is hitting my accounts like this and find a way to make them stop.
