Over the last few days whenever I open Outlook Express I am receiving an e-mail from Mail Delivery Service – Subject : Delivery Status Notification. Content of e-mail reads – These recipients of your message have been processed by the mail server ……it then shows my e-mail address….. Failed: 5.7.1 (delivery not authorised, message refused)
In addition OE removed access to the following unsafe attachment: ATT00007.dat Think abo.ut how much a new m.ortgage will save y
This e-mail has come through about five or six times. I delete it straight away and wouldn’t dream of trying to open the attachment.
I have a rule set up in Outlook Express where any e-mails not specifically addressed to me are deleted at the Server. Also use Tiscalli Secure Mail. Spam has reduced to a trickle since introducing these.
I just don’t understand the e-mail from Mail Delivery Service. It may well be totally obvious to someone else – can you please enlighten me.
I get loads of these too. If it is about 144K it is similar to the one that I get regularly. It usually accompanied by a Microsoft Update spoof email with the Swen Worm.A virus. I don't know how to stop it coming either.
The square boxes are a problem on this forum, which doesn't recognise smart quotes from Word. Turn off autocorrect is the only solution if you must use Word. Otherwise try Wordpad.
The e-mail address in the notification is my own and it is correct. It looks as though someone, using my e-mail address, is sending e-mails and for some reason sent one to itself and has been refused. Or am I reading the situation wrong?
This is driving me nuts. Think I shall e-mail Tiscalli.
A bit off subject, but I run several 'hotmail' accounts, one being the main reciepient of most of my email, I set filters to catch the worst spam, then its redirected to another provider for more filtering, and so on.. by the time my static account gets my mail, most of the spam has been well and truly filtered out. Not all 'hotmail accounts allow forwarding' but once set up, it works well and is free.
