    Mail Delivery Failed (OE 6.0)

    My wife keeps getting a returned Email Message that says:
    Mail Delivery Failed: Returning Message to
    From Mail Delivery System

    The only problem is she hasn't sent any Email to anybody that this Message Shows. And she keeps getting 4 or 5 of them or more a day. How can I stop this stupid Return Message.

    Some thoughts:
    1. <LI>Just in case it is a receipt, turn off read receipts (not sure where this is in OE).
      <LI>If the addresses are in her address book, scan for the Klez virus; it sends with a fake "From" but a valid "Reply-to" address.
      <LI>Block outbound SMTP at the firewall (e.g., ZoneAlarm) to see if in fact the computer is her computer.
    Unfortunately, some spammers and some virus infections (on other peoples' computers) could be generating this return traffic. If that's the case, not much you can do.

    I agree with Jefferson, some one is trying to send a virus because her address and the address's of the failed are in a infected machine.
