We are running windows XP pro.
We have a digital dial up and when i come in in the morning to check my mail
i find i have a lot of undelivered mail which could not be sent.
Some of the mails are being sent at 11-45PM when i'm at home.

Please see an example of the returned mail.

Our email address in the office is: office@newbyltd.freeserve.co.uk

Reporting-MTA: dns; starfury12.uol.com.br
X-Postfix-Queue-ID: 950235000170
X-Postfix-Sender: rfc822; ewyk@newbyltd.freeserve.co.uk
Arrival-Date: Fri, 6 Oct 2006 11:18:44 -0300 (BRT)

Final-Recipient: rfc822; dr.jr@uol.com.br
Action: failed
Status: 5.0.0

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Kind regards

No need to post more than once.

The problem is that your address has been hijacked and the spammer using it
is sending messages to many invalid addresses. Since the receiving mail
servers see your address as the sender, you get the bounces. Your machine
most likely has not been compromised.

No, since it's happening on a PC not under your control.

I am receiving up to 50 returned emails per day from the person who has
spammed my address, and when i emptied the deleted files in outlook it still
showed that there were 342 left.
When i try to delete any old mail i get the messgae " messaging Interface
has returned an unknown error, try and restart outlook if this problem
persists.

I cannot send or receive any mail and get the error codes 0x8004060C & after
trying to repair the settings in outlook the error code has changed to
0x800CCC0D

There is a second PC connected to the network, with this as the server. The
second PC is still abvle to send and receive mail with no problem but i need
to try to resolve this issue.

Have you any suggestions as it appears to have been instigated when i
deleted all the spam files from the deleted items folder.

Help!!!!

many thanks again Brian, you must have some information stored inside your
gray matter.

If i could i'd send you a large drink, maybe in a couple of years the way
technology is progressing.

Thankyou

Chris
