I keep receiving Viruses from someone. The address they are coming from though is MY domain name. They are coming quite regularly now is there anyway I can find out who is sending them?

is it buy email if so have you checked out the message sorce

  [DELETED] 16:19 08 Sep 2003

Yes it is by email and how do I check the source? If you mean just looking at who it is from then it is supposedley being sent from myself. (my domain)

If someone is sending viruses they are unlikely to know about it. However, reading your thread I would guess that you have a virus yourself, which would account for the use of your domain name. I assume that your AV is well up to date, do a full scan and you may like to try housecall to scan your computer online click here.

That's providing the senders not female!

Have you tried sending them to your ISP [email protected](yourdomain).com and let them have the worry of sorting it out?

HA HA...never thought it could be female right enough. I might send them to my ISP and see what happens.

who ever it is is just wasting there time cos obviously I check it before opening attachments but I would like to know who and why.

  [DELETED] 22:06 08 Sep 2003
