    Hi,
    From time to time I will get a return receipt on OL2K for mail I never sent. Sometimes I get admin notes saying mail I sent bombed. I think a worm/virus/sumthin got in behind me......

    Any ideas on the best way to confirm this if the virus scanner doesn't show anything?

    It sounds as if your email address is being used to bounce messages. This is usually done by spammers or hackers that are using your email address to send out viruses.

    I am not sure if you are using yahoo or what, but if you are using yahoo, or any of the other free web based email systems you can stop that. If you use an ISP for your email, then you need to find out how to stop it.
