shochat Posted January 31, 2004 Share Posted January 31, 2004 I have recently started to use my spamcop.net E-mail account more and am considering switching over to it completely. However, I received a troubling bounce today to a message ostensibly from me, which I had never sent. Furthermore, the bounce seems to imply that the message I supposedly sent contained a virus. The most confusing part is that when I study the source of the bounce, particularly the included source of the message being bounced, I see this: Received: from spamcop.net (localhost [127.0.0.1]) by mx3.interplay.com (8.12.10/8.12.9) with ESMTP id i0TN7W0K023161 for <maria[at]interplay.com>; Thu, 29 Jan 2004 15:07:32 -0800 Now what does that mean? Does it mean that I was being spoofed by someone inside interplay.com? The bounce message I received did seem to have come legitimately from mx3.interplay.com (the sending IP address matched mx3.interplay.com in DNS). Should I just ignore this? The idea of someone sending a virus-laden message supposedly from me is kind of troubling. -- David Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
