You just could have emailed someone in the past who has a virus and since you are in there address section of there emails it grabed it and is sending them out so you are getting rejected ones back to you email. Happens to me once in a while also. The fact that you post on sites about tractors means you probley send email once in a while to like people who post at the same places so that may be why the messages show up about stuff you look at.

Yes...

It is also possible to 'spoof' an IP addy, though why anyone would want to do that to you is beyond me...

Middletown is not that far from 'the city'...

they way i read the poster is that he may be using a computer that someone else set up and he don't know, he seems to know what sites i go to.


Exactly my point...    Posted 02-27-2005 at 07:50:48       [Reply]  [No Email]
It is either someone in your house, or someone that is VERY good on the net...

Most Script-Kiddies can not spoof...

Salmoneye,

I would go to:

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

And let them scan your system...

Bob, spyware can be picked up anywhere merely by opening a window or other ways. So can keyloggers, etc. and it is possible that Philip may have been a troll. If youre concerned, run a scan...Norton's should clean it out...

Go here and let them scan your system...

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

It is free...

Then Bob, I would tend to think like salmoneye, re; spoofing your ip. I also think that Philip was a roving troll,and unrelated to your problem. I hope Im wrong about Philip.
