    Default Bad emails

    Every day I receive emails ( 70 or so ) saying "sorry, your mail could not be
    delivered because of XXXXXX to ????"
    I typed these XXXX & ??? because each is a different and totally unknown
    address. Example: Roch47@SE.ht....
    I think its a mass mailing trying to get me to answer a fake mail.
    Each say to "contact postmaster".
    These daily mails are a pain. I delete each one and dont open.


    What do you all think ?

    Very likely a spammer or virus is using your email address to send out mass mailings.
    If it is a virus then it is likely that the some may still contain the bounced
    message containing the virus. Back-up your good mail as some anti-virus software can
    damage or delete mail files causing _all_ mail to be lost, not just the messages with
    a virus.

    Your issue does not concern Windows Update. Try asking for help in a newsgroup
    pertaining to your email client. They will be better able to help you take
    appropriate action to protect you data and security.

    I think your problem has nothing to do with Windows Update.

    Which Windows Update do you think caused this?
