    *VERY* strange e-mail going out!

    Every so often I get a mail delivery error for an undeliverable "account-22@live.com" but this is NOT an address I have in my "book".

    It shows as coming from my address to the live.com address though.

    Who / what could this be or be caused by, and how do I stop it?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    If you have done full malware scans that have turned up empty then most likely, your email address has been harvested by a spammer. It is probably someone who had your email address that has been compromised. Once a spammer has a email addresses it is a trivial exercise to use a fake address in an email. As long as you are sure your machine is not infected, there is nothing worth your effort to try to stop this.
