Mailer daemon virus?

Discussion in 'Personal' started by ResourceFinder, Jul 14, 2011.

  1. Today at work I received about 90 Mailer and Postmaster emails telling me that an email was undeliverable

    The emails they referred to were gibberish with gibberish email addresses

    Is it a virus

    I accidentally opened the first one

    Am I a goner

    It is a well known issue. It is the result of spammers using authentic email addresses (in this case yours). I'm not sure if they actually hijack your account by signing in as you, or just use the name on the from form. Whatever it is, you are seeing the result of the non-deliverable spam. I'm not sure what the fix is (apart from changing your email account) but try this link for clues http://windowslivehelp.com/thread.aspx?threadid=4b5b95e4-5ebd-4b24-9669-a3a3de9820d4
