comment Why does tomcat like deleting my context.xml file?
Ah. Thanks. That makes a twisted kind of sense. I would call this feature mis-designed or at the very least, a hidden side-effect.

comment How to stop people from using my domain to send spam?
I have this problem at the moment, too, and my SPF records are correct. Unfortunately, a lot of big mail providers ignore SPF records. Including such luminaries as Yahoo. :-(

comment Is it normal to get hundreds of break-in attempts per day?
A variant of this tactic which is more effective, but much riskier, is to report the ISP to the intermediate node. But you MUST have your report evidence solid. I got a whole ISP in grave trouble once doing this, because they were ignoring their abuse reports.
