    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
    www.avast.com - free scanner for non commercial use

    also download and run

    spybot http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-amp-Destroy/3000-8022_4-10122137.html?cdlPid=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
