Old Aug 24th, 2003, 07:01 AM        bouncing emails I never sent
Lately, every day I get more "returned mail to sender" e-mails from mail servers and mailer daemons that I never sent. I figure this is a worm or something at work.

Thing is: I use Hotmail exclusively, no Outlook. Is there anything I can do to stop these fake messages from being sent, or is it just that worms are spoofing my e-mail addresses on other people's computers?

Actually, it's just spam that people are sending you with a mailer daemon error in the subject header to trick you.

See, you're supposed to go, "What did I send that was wrong? I better check this out." And then you open it and see a giant cock and become compelled to send all your money to a guy in Cambodia.

It's also simple enough to spoof someone's e-mail address so that it appears in the return path by just generating false header information. Anyone with PHP or ASP skillz can do it in 2 seconds.

I get the same thing, Fatty. I don't even fuck with it since it shows up in my junk mail folder though.
I could just scream

it's not a VIRUS, it's a WORM and OMG there is such a difference

I get those emails every once in a while. I just delete them. I wish more people would use my email address to send spam to people. I would love to get random emails from QTxWITxAxBOOTI@AOL.com saying "DONT SEND ME THIS SIHT ITS PORN AND ITS GROSS IM GONNA REPORT YOU TO AOL."
Bobo Adobo is funnier and smarter than all of you, proven by the fact that he is currently in a high-paying and important government job where he earns a fat cash paycheck and much pussy. How did he get so famous and successful you ask? It's simple: he has never, in his entire life, watched one second of anime.

First of all, I can't understand for the life of me how you can get through one day without walking off buildings and setting yourself on fire.

That being said, neither can I understand why your PC isn't so clogged up with easily avoidable viruses, that you can't turn it on without it sneezing in your face and getting on the Internet is impossible alltogether, which would be a merciful act.

My only possible conclusion is that your great-grandmother gives great head to God (take that, alliteration), and Darwin too, because all signs point to the necessity of rooting you out of existence before you breed. Die. Please. Shut up, die. At least die. At least do that much.

The other way you can fake peoples email adresses is using a mass mailer/ email bomber. I think if you email bomb an address that doesnt exist using the persons email it all bounces back on them i think but i doubt thats your case.
