I've been monitoring my forum traffic via awstats, and noticed a recent (last few months) large increase in:
Connect to site from - Links from an external page (other web sites except search engines):
My host tells me this subdomain is setup by default, for cpanel installations, for sending mail.
A few months ago I could see no trace of traffic from this source, but now there's like 10,000+ hits
to pages like http://mail.mydomain.com/viewtopic.php
Can anyone shed some light on this?
Thanks a lot!
