I've just had 6 e-mails from [email protected]Á¾¿í entirled 'Delivery Staus Notification (Failure)'.

Is this spam?

Those messages normally mean that an e-mail that you have sent has "bounced" at the other end (e.g. address doesn't exist).

I've been getting them from Demon abundantly for the last week or so for emails I've never sent. Are you using a hotmail address as well?

I haven't sent e-mails for any of the non-deliveries. I'm using Outlook Express and only give my e-mail address to friends and family. One of the non-delivery notifications is from [email protected] which contains HTML and what appears to be porn links.

That will teach me to read them properly - I use Mailwasher Pro so tend to glance and nuke..

It's not Yaha which creates a 6 figure dll file on your PC. I don't have any.

I occasionally get these in my Hotmail junk mail folder. I suspect they are automated attempts to get you to confirm you have a valid email address by opening them. Just delete.

I suspect that's their role too. Just got 3 more this morning.
