    Odds are someone who has your email address in their address book has gotten a computer virus. The delivery failures are one way it tries to reach other computers.

    I get them every now and then. But they are flagged to go into my junk mail folder, which automatically gets emptied every few days.

    Just the last few days I've gotten scads of these varmits.

    Up until a week or so ago, I'd get probably 5-10 spams/day; but at this AM checking I had some 25, and have gotten about 12-15 more thru the day.

    I don't understand the sudden volume increase.

    Those that show undelivered mail, have always shown it was "not delivered" to some address that I never heard of. That's when I simply told my server to treat them as spam!

    Update:

    Turns out this is a variation of the sober worm virus. Very nasty.

    Do not open the accompanying file, or you just added to the problem.

    In Christ,

    Yep. Just got one. Came through my ISP email address (I only gave that to 3 people: 1 friend, 1 missionary, and 1 forum).

    I am hearing about this, but either gmail is recognising it and getting rid of it before I see it, or I have just been fortunate.

    No thanks [​IMG] .

    I might not even see them, google does a pretty good job of catching the bad ones.
