Just another reminder that someone is using my e-mail address to send out e-mail from my address. I never know this is happening, but now and then I get a notification that an attachment is infected and can't be delivered.
All of my e-mail is scanned for viruses both in and outbound. I seldom if ever send attachments, but if I do the subject line will contain the words
Sorry for any inconvenience, so far the addresses that these are being sent to aren't from my address list, ('cept one) but better safe than sorry.

change your password. If they are submitting the mail to your ISP's server for inital dilervery then they have your password. If they are using an "open relay" server then they don't have your password and there is not much you can do about it. check the properties of returned mail it will tell you the mail address that sent it and it's reply address. but change your password anyway. use two words seperated by a space or underscore or minus sign. change the letter "A" to "@" the letter "L" or "I" to a one the letter "E" to a "3"

If you ever received a piece of SPAM mail, this may happen to you...

What the spammers do is send out mail to many addresses...The ones that don't bounce back to them are real addresses (like yours Ron)...They then send out SPAM using YOUR address which is real as the return address...Some of the ones they send out are to unreal addresses and YOU will get the failure notices as your real address is in the return to sender field...

Clear as mud, eh?

Unfortunately, it is,,,, now I guess the only thing to do is change my address????? Nuts I hate it when jerks whack me like this.

that might explain the "undeliverable" email that bounces back to me. I never sent it out to begin with but keep getting informed that the email I sent was not delivered.

Nah...    Posted 06-21-2004 at 09:19:10       [Reply]  [No Email]
Why change you adress?

Unless you dislike getting the failure notices that is...Other than that I ignore it...

The SPAMMERS are not sending stuff to people you know...If the failure notices are to people you know, then you have more problems that email fishermem...

No they don't really bother me, the hundred or so per day spams did, til I set up my outlook to trash all the other crap.
Nothing going to anyone on my list so I live with it.

Set in your preferences to dump anything with the word 'undeliverable' off your server...
