    I don't know where to put this, sorry!
    I keep getting an email from the 'Mail Delivery Subsystem' saying I have returned mail. Well, the return mail list is very long. I don't know any of these people and I sure never emailed them. I have recieved this a few times. Does this mean someones using my account to send emails? Okay, I really don't know what it means, but it seems strange I've recieved returned mail that no one here has sent.
    Any ideas? Suggestions?
    Thanks!!

    Copy and paste the error message here so we can see it. It usually reads "maeler - dameon" (sp) host unknown or such and such and address unknown etc. in there will be the clue as to what is going on.

    Hey I get those all the time too. My IT guy at school told me just to delete them, but it makes me nervous. Let's hear more.

    most likely someone is using a spam program and uses your email address as a return on failure to deliver. I have seen this alot when I was an Exchange administrator.

    I get these from time to time and they almost always have a virus associated with them. So far my virus protection snags them and quarantines them.

    All where it says "Deferred: 421 Error: too many errors", on my eamil there's a different email address in front of each one, they didn't show up when I copy and pasted the letter. There's 31 diffrent email addresses in front of "deferred:...".
