I have just recently collected my emails,i had 12 all told and 8 had attachments text sms.zips
all contained I worm Bagle/IS virus,my AV program detected these and sent them to the vault
but on further inspection it seems i am sending myself emails with this attachment as they have my email name on the sender,i have scaned my pc and it came back clean so where do they keep comming from,i thought sms attachments were mobile texts? are they bieng sent from mobile phones?

No they don't come from mobile phones.

Someone who knows your e-mail address has a virus.

The files are ZIP files (textsms.zip). The virus makes it look like it's coming from you to hide the true sender and stop you alerting them to having a virus.
