"Undeliverable Mail"....Virus or Spy??????

1114 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  ~Candy~
Hello Everyone,

I am having a great amount of undeliverable mail and the format looks suspicious... like it is a worm or a virus... I was already alerted by Norton that a virus was found (and removed) in one such e-mail. Is there a virus out there that sends these? the last one wanted me to click on the attachment to view the details..... I deleted it without opening. I'm leery of them.

Thanks.

Just wondering if anyone knows any thing about this. My Norton is not catching them. What should I do?

:confused: :(
My view is to scan any attachments I recieve even if it appears to be from a trusted friend. If I don't know them, it gets deleted, no questions asked.

This situation is probably caused by your e-mail address being in an address book on someone else's computer and not yours. But, I'd update my Norton definitions and run a scan just to make sure. :)
I think my Norton scans each one .... but I may not have a setting right. The attachments are where the problems are... I have not opened any of the attachments. Any way to find out where my address is? Guess not..huh?
Thanks for your reply.

Hey, Lyn, just did a search for your possible post...when you say Norton isn't detecting them, Norton's job starts once you double click on them to 'attempt' to open them. If you are getting undeliverable return emails, that means someone has you in their address book and your email address is probably being spoofed. Just make a rules in your outlook express to send to trash anything with {Filename?} in subject line.
