I have just received an odd email :-

I'm sorry to have to inform you that the message returned below could not be delivered to one or more destinations.

Undeliverable message to [email protected]

I have not sent any messages like that to a recipient with that address? Does anyone know what is likely to be going on? Is it a virus/worm or whatever and should I respond?

It's a virus, just delete, bjay. If you're using OE turn off the Preview pane before clicking on it to delete it. In OE go to View > Layout and untick "Show Preview Pane".

Thanks MAJ - I am not using OE. Problem solved.

You'll get plenty of those, bjay, they're doing the rounds at the moment. Also watch out for any emails pretending to be from Microsoft with Patches and updates, they're also viruses, delete those too.
