Outlook returned mail

Question

I'm using Outlook Express and I get these messages from 'Mail Delivery Subsystem' and the subject is 'Returned Mail: See transcript for details' and these messages always come with some sort of attachment. The returned mail is from someone I have e-mailed in the past and may or may not be in my address list. There is a meesage like this almost every time I open Outlook and they are almost always make reference to a different addressee. Hope you can help.

Thank You in Advance.

I run a scan on every email now and all attachments I am using Yahoo mail now because they have a virus program with there email that lets me double check the email.

I have seen them as returned emails, from web masters, from universities, you name it I have seen them Each one is different from the others This virus changes each time it sends itself It is also the longest hanging around one I have seen It just keeps coming back.

I forget the exact name of it but check with any anti-virus program and you will see it listed.

If you open the full heading you will see that the emails do not orginate where they show they are.

Hopes this helps you Check them all for this virus.
