I keep getting sent the W32 Swen virus. All day everyday. Maybe twenty or thirty times a day. It's a real pain!. Unfortunately, the sender's addresses are not real, so I can't email the people, ( or probably just one person), that is responsible.
How do I resolve the REAL mail address? Please help. I 've asked everybody I know to scan their computers with the latest Stinger, but they are all clean

I would get mailwasher and then have it deleted, bouced back to sender. It may not be able to bonce it if the address is fake but you will be able to delete it from your email server so you will not have to download it.
Also you can make a friend list so that when you download your email your only get what is on that list and the rest gets deleted.

It is free

Thanks Heewee, My McAfee TVS automatically sends emails to people that send me viruses, but I turned it off because the addresses were randomly generated. I then received lots of mail from postmasters saying the adderesses didn't exist. I run a small company from from home, so I need to let everybody email me, whether I know them or not. I would be happy to donate if I was given constructive help, but as of yet I have not received proper help for any of my queries. However, I have helped as many people as I can and will continue to do so.

If you get the paid version or a older version of mailwasher you can set it up for more then one email account.
Also your able to click on the email and see it without downloading it and you can have it show the full hearder.

Here is another one.
Frontgate MX, simple effective email control and it is free.

Your welcome

Wish I could of helped you out but others may know something.

Don't know but maybe posting in the " Business Applications " forum your have more there who will be able to help because of more Business people seeing your post.

May be best to sent a email to everyone in your address book and tell them there is the W32 Swen virus because someone I bet has it and does not know it and then they keep email you and may now it.
