I have been getting notices back from a number of web sites, particularly Italian ones, stating that I have sent them an email containing a virus. I have not actually sent these emails, someone is sending them and using my address in the reply box. If you recieve an email from me containing a small attachment that you aren't expecting, please delete it. I'm trying to sort this out, but it's taking time.

EDIT: If anyone could get the header info from this email, it would be greatly appreciated, none of the people who have sent me automated replies have contacted me back about getting this info. I'm especially looking for the originating IP and ISP, if available, and anything else for info that might be included. Thanks!

Hehe, there are tons of documentation about them. Here's Dan Bernstein's (QMail author) opinion:

An electronic mail message can easily be forged. Almost everything in it, including the return address, is completely under the control of the sender.

An electronic mail message can be manually traced to its origin if
(1) all system administrators of intermediate machines are both cooperative and competent,
(2) the sender did not break low-level TCP/IP security, and
(3) all intermediate machines are secure.

Heck, I'm even receiving emails from myself. This means I have to cooperate with me, in order to catch the damn fokker? Nah, it's a waste of time... Most of the JoeJobs are generated by bots nowadays, and the owner of the sending machine is usually innocent; the only guilt would be to have an insecure system. If this is the case, then the problem complicates further, mainly because clever bots can "break low-level TCP/IP security" on *cough* some OSes.

... and, btw, it's dborca, not dboarca

heh, sorry, laptop keyboards don't work really well for me, it's amazing that's the only word I messed up.

perhaps it isn't worth it, but I don't like the idea of being thought a spammer (lecram, keep your thoughts to yourself).
