Why am I getting "Delivery Failures" from unknown addresses?

Spammers use a variety of methods to try and make their mails look legitimate. They often use a  real email address as the sender address to make the email look valid. Unfortunately this means that the real owner of that address will receive any failure notices.

 

There is no way to either stop or protect yourself against this type of action. It is often regular computers infected with a virus that cause this problem so to prevent the spread of these problems keep your virus protection up to date.
