    When I send e-mails from my home machine the recipients often receive a message later saying that their message sent to an address, which was my previous works address, is undeliverable. They have not sent these messages. I have checked my system for a virus but the system is clean.

    I can't see that this is a spammer using my old address to avoid return e-mails as the messages have only started with my recipients since I e-mailed them. I am the common denominator.

    Spam trojans will spoof the "from" address by taking one off the infected PC at random.

    They will not show as sent mail on the infected PC, as they use a stealth SMTP program.

    As a trojan, some virus checkers may miss them. How have you confirmed that your PC is clean?

    I've got AVG and Pitstop plus tried some other cleaners that I forget. I have notice before that each cleaner does not always pick up the same issues. I will try antra one.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
