    User Unknown Virus

    I wake up this Am to find my mailbox filled with about 30 emails with User Unknown errors (all from different users Ive never emailed) and all containing viruses - it was a pain that norton popped up for every email.

    Is anyone else getting this?

    nope... I got a Klez e-mail a few days ago but it's been fairly quiet for viruses lately.

    I think the latest klez will actually send it's viruses out with a random "from" email address that it has collected from web cache or address book. This is making it hard to email people back to let them know that they're infected.

    If you know you're clean, more than likely the email was sent from someone else's infected machine with your "from" address.

    Best way to tell where it actually originally came from is to look at the IP address in the headers.
