Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender
Hi, I get thousands of these emails, Ok hundreds... Am I sending spam? I don't think so. Are these spam attacks? Are they hurting me? what can I do? I have replaced my domain name with xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx in this post.

thanks, Frank

i suspect you have a virus / spyware - when I have seen this before - basically it looks throughout your PC at all tempory internet files and uses those emails to send to

do you have a virus scanner which is up to date
if not you can use an oline version
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/uk/
or
www.avast.com - free scanner for non commercial use

also download and run

spybot http://www.download.com/Spybot-Searc...dlPid=10861988
ad-aware http://www.lavasoft.com/

all above are free

then you may need to load a hjt log and move to malware forum

Thanks for the response. I ran antivirus, adware, and spybot and came up clean. wonder what's up? It may be some spammer who has my address who uses it and gets caught? In that case, he is not attacking me but it is a pain. That is only a guess by someone who has no clue... I'm grabbing at straws. any other ideas? thanks, Frank

sounds like it is a spammer with your email address, i dont how you cant avoid that,
you could set up a rule to move those email into a folder to at least clean up your inbox
