from boxing day i've been getting mail delivery e-mails saying the mails i tried to send were un deliverable. One, the mails in question, i didn't send and two the mails are about enlarging stuff down below. Is this the latest ploy of the spam mailers ??

I've already warned in the forums about this scam - best thing is to just delete such e-mails without even opening them.

Powerless,
I ran that check too (symatec), and everyhing was cool. This just started on boxing day. Nothing else dodgey happening with my pc though

They may have been sent by someone else, who has a particular virus, and has you in their address book.

The Klez virus can spoof your address - that is it sends an email from the infected computer, but makes it look as if it came from you.

So do the virus check, but don't be amazed if you don't have a virus.

Your email address has been 'hijacked'. Try reporting it to your ISP - they may be able to help.

Yes, it is a ploy by spammers - I have been the victim of it myself, although I didn't realise until they sent one addressed 'by me' using one of my email addresses, to me at another of my email addresses :)

I use mailwasher as it will delete known spam, I have set it to filter out:

Swear words,Porn related words and links, Hack related words, Free and Win, etc.

And you can delete them without the attachments from being opened automatacly and from them spreading viruses.
