Message delayed for 24 hours?

  butterflylost 13:06 05 Dec 2010

Okay, i got this message in my inbox recently:

Warning: message 1PO8Bs-0004Il-Qw delayed 24 hours:

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.
A message that you sent has not yet been delivered to one or more of its
recipients after more than 24 hours on the queue on

The message identifier is: 1PO8Bs-0004Il-Qw
The subject of the message is: ¥ÕÝõ´f"¾D¨k¤Í£x¤â´¡¶i¥h¡P¤F
The date of the message is: Thu, 09 Dec 2010 05:03:37 -0700

The address to which the message has not yet been delivered is:

[email protected]
Delay reason: mailbox is full

No action is required on your part. Delivery attempts will continue for
some time, and this warning may be repeated at intervals if the message
remains undelivered. Eventually the mail delivery software will give up,
and when that happens, the message will be returned to you.

I have no idea who this is and what this is about, also I received an email in my junk file from an Asian email address - again I have no idea who this is? So, is my email hacked or something - I have not signed up with this email to anything else and I created it only a week ago for business matters.

Much help appreciated...

As a precaution, change your email address password and do a full (in depth) virus scan of your PC.

If your PC is sending unintended emails you may be part of a botnet or similar.

  lotvic 00:26 06 Dec 2010

It's just the normal spam - Delete it.

If your pc comes up clean after all scans etc. and was not sent from your pc, then it just means that the email address (yours) has been generated at random by some spammer's software at some point.

It will eventually stop as they seem to rotate addresses every few weeks or so.

But that's the problem, the first message I posted seemed to come from the MSN mail delivery software.I have not sent any emails with that email address at all...

Return-path: <sikze @>

Is that YOUR email address that you created a week ago?
If it is then Contact the Forum Editor to have it removed from on here as it will now be being 'harvested' by the web crawlers and will generate more spam for you to receive.

I think you have just been unfortunate to have chosen an email address that was already being spoofed by spammers and now you are getting the returned mail that they have sent out.
They usually fake the sender and return address so that they are difficult to trace back.

Possibly it might be better if you scrap that addy and make a new one for your business use.

Ok cheers - didn't realise that my email was in the message , are there no way to edit the messages? Who's the forum editer?

  johnnyrocker 22:05 06 Dec 2010

it would not be advising you of non delivery to your own e mail so if you dont recognise the alleged recepient it is as previously posted a spam issue


  lotvic 22:39 06 Dec 2010

When you are logged in to PCAdvisor you will see in blue just above your very first post 'Contact Forum Editor' if you click on that it will open a message box for you to type in.
Just explain that you have accidentally published your email address and please can he delete the thread.
(I've had to do it a couple of times when I've made a mistake ;-))

You can always start a new thread if you want to continue getting help but this time make sure you edit out your email address.

  lotvic 22:41 06 Dec 2010

ps: there is no way to edit it yourself.
No edit button on this forum, what you post stays posted unless FE deletes it.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
