    Often this is the bounce message from a virus faking your email address. Spammers sometimes do the same thing - you get a flurry of these and they stop eventually.

    I forward nonsense like that to my ISP. They set up some elaborate filter to check the email address against the originating IP address.

    They have a web-based email system, too. I dunno how the filter works there.

    If you started getting these bounce mail in huge numbers in the last couple of days, it is probably because of the new mydoom.m virus. It does not though that you email server has the virus. It simply spoofed the sender address with your address (like moo said). Nothing you could do really to stop this happening.

    If you have your email address on your website, the spammers can pick it up. But also the virus infected computers can pick it up and send it back to you.

    I've been getting these, too. About one every 10 minutes. I don't have my email address on my site, but I noticed this began happening after a questionable link exchange email that I responded to. I figured someone was harvesting email addresses by offering a link exchange and making a list from the reply emails.

    Sandra,
    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> I guess as long as my server is blocking them, I guess it ok.
    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    The problem I am having is I am getting some emails from Internet Providers saying that a couple of my sites are are sending out tons of spam emails. They say I probably have a virus on my comp which I don't. I'm just worried about ending up on some website being accused of spamming. I don't send out a newsletter or anything, Yet that is and my list is all opt in. My guess is it is what Darkstar says, having the email on the website and having visitors computers who get the virus sending it around with a cache of my websites

    Above is the URL on the virus you're talking about. You'll often see a message that looks like it's from your internet service saying that you're sending out mass e-mails. It's a virus.

    And it's nothing you did....

    I don't do link exchanges or anything wierd at all. I don't register with anyone but the big boys. That damn virus - the exact one you're seeing is more than smart!!!!!!!! It has read my site and taken high density keywords and then spoofed back to me (and untold others) with emails like keyword@myaffdomain.com or listedproduct@mydomain.com where those emails don't even exist!!!!

    And they only thing the email does is perpetuate the doom virus - it's usually attached as product.zip or keyword.zip or mydomainname.zip and many other variants...

    HATE that my domain name is being spoofed.

    My ISP and my merchants and my domain registrar and others in my aff biz all agree it ain't me or them and have confirmed via originating IP (which varies and is masked and is switched and is spoofed as well) that this is nasty!

    And i wish the geeks that track these things would come up with better names so at least it would be entertaining... like "spoof-bomb" or "who-farted"... otherwise, this isn't even funny!
