    my inbox got invaded by 2000 spam emails, and all from the same online pharmacy.

    is there a way to do host lookup, im really curious to know who they are hosting with?

    i already did whois lookup but all i got was the domain registrar

    Is it ok?

    Does it require counseling? Will it ever recover?

    I hope your inbox has a strong soul and this does not impact the rest of its life. I hope it can once again receive mail without having to look over its shoulder...

    They may use same provider for domain and host

    I had the same thing happen when I posted my experience with BHS VPS... the guy who runs BHS VPS started a war against me and submitted my email address to thousands of mailing lists, and also made thousands of rude blog comments in what he thought was my name... so if you've used BHS VPS, this could be what's happened :)

    They could be using a mailing service so it will be separate from the host that is hosting their website.

    Indeed, prioritizing a defamation and spam campaign over customer service... he's clearly got his priorities in order!
