    I keep getting emails with a title "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)", with a LONG list of invalid email addresses (just like a bounced email). My machine is viris free, is it possible someone is spoofing my email address, or would they have my password God forbid!

    Unfortunately it is an email address I can not possibly change, on the other hand I don't want to get in trouble for spam I did not send. What in the world can I do?

    Happens to almost everybody. Don't sweat it; you won't get into any trouble for spam that you did not send.

    I get spam from myself to myself. I used to get upset but them I realized some new spammers are fixing it so when you get email it is from the same server you are on, not that you are sending it, it just APPEARS on the reply to address that it is from your domain. I love the spam I get from Japan the most. Beautiful pictures and music included... lOL!

    I too am a spammer, but it seems that I only spam myself

    I would report myself but I am afraid I would get in trouble ;-)

    Happens to me from time to time as well. It's interesting when you notice the message to you is also from you! Funny, I don't remember sending out any messages to myself about great refinancing opportunities...

    Our new CAN SPAM legislation has certainly put the brakes on spam, hasn't it? Brilliant move! How many millions do you suppose this worthless legislation cost American taxpayers?

    CAN SPAM is about as worthless as the CoC!

    Thanks all, I feel a little better. I was more worried about the men in black comming to my house and taking me away! With the size of the invalid list I can just imagine how many get through!

    Commonly known as being "joe-jobbed".

    Luckily most ISP's and providers are aware it's a widespread problem and the chances of being disconnected in a knee-jerk reaction by a clueless idiot (I know redundant) is less than a while ago.

    Now, if those dumb-arse virus-detection-software writers would only fix their damn software so I don't get anymore of those stupid "your machine sent a virus" bounces. Grrrr.
