Apologies to everyone (as far as I can give them) for the inconvenience which was outside our control.
Bytemark, who host the web and mail server, have been listed by Spamhaus as being the originators of Spam email.
It looks like it is one user whose Virtual Machine on one IP has been compromised but Spamhaus have listed the whole of Bytemark's IP blocks.
