Anyone else received a message from Mailer-Daemon postmaster about an undelivered Email to the above? Sounds like a scam to me, I never sent the mail.

Probably one of those virus emails that are going around, graham√, just delete it.

delete it.

Strange, there were no attachments. All the data included looked just like you get when you try to send to an incorrect address.

It's probably a searcher trying to find valid email addresses.

If you had been more curious and responded to it, this would have confirmed you are real - with all sorts of consequences.

Thanks, yes I know, and I had never heard of them before. I certainly didn't send them an E-mail, and there's no record in my sent E-mails.

I had a similar message from AOL Postmaster which did seem to match up with a message I had just sent, but the name of the firm and the address was not the same as that of the genuine firm.

I deleted it any way.

Boo! Thanks, I hadn't seen that.
