I keep getting msgs from unkown addresses telling me they did not accept my message because it was infected with netsky.

I have up to date antivirus software in every desktop and server, I have searched trough the registry for know keys created by netsky, and I ran netsky removal tool from Symantec in every computer. Nothing.

Still I get e-mails again and again with the same msgs.

Where else can I go to remove it?

Van,

These viruses will spoof the From address in the emails they send out. Sometimes the address it spoofs happens to be a real address, such as postmaster@yourdomain.com, or whatever. That means you conveniently get the reply or NDR from the recipient of the message.

Read here for more details:

Here is an example of the msgs I receive at least once a day.

Since I have my own may server registered let's say to "company.com", I believe the problem is here, but I've scanned with every virus removal tool my servers and my workstations, and still they don't detect anything.

Our viruschecker found the

virus in your email to the following recipient:

-> <info.ibl-haustechnik.de@secureland.de>

Delivery of the email was stopped!

Please check your system for viruses,
or ask your system administrator to do so.

I get these types of messages too, unfortunatley. Even though I'm 100% sure we're not sending out any virus infected messages. Spoofing.

So I imagine there is nothing that I can do about it unless watching my business image being hurt by this?
