    Strange failed to deliver mesage

    At work we only have 1 e.mail address as there are only 4 of us [5 if you count the accounts lady] We have a server and 4 pc's onthe network.We all receive the same e.mails.[outlook express]
    Today we received 2 faild to deliver mesages which in itself is not strange but these 2 had strange receiver adress ending with keiv.ua.I checked with all the others and no one had sent any thing to this address.
    Could this be a virus or malware phoneing home??

    It could be, or more likely some spam has been sent with your email address as the forged sending address. The mail has failed and you, as the alleged sender, are getting the failure notice. It happens all the time - all it takes is someone else with your email address in their address book to be infected, and there is not a lot you can do.

    Keeping your AV software up to date, running a firewall (other than the standard Windows one) and doing regular malware scans should keep you safe.
