Test your email server to find out if it is an Open Relay.  You can check using any of the sites like

You can also check one of the databases

I know emails that are coming through as "Mail Delivery Subsystem" can be generated from the MyDoom virus.

If you are receiving this email and did not send anything then most likely it was spoofed and the email should be deleted. I had about 40k reports of this issue last week and finally started purging at my internet gateways. This was all on inbound (spoofed) emails. I tested your server for Open Relay and it looks pretty secure. I don't see your domain listed on any of the major RBL's either.


More Information:

MyDoom Virus can propagate as the following Addresses -
