I have Windows 2003 Exchange server. THe past few weeks I have been getting nondeliverable email notifacations on emails that I know have not been sent from my computer. Can anyone help me with this. I have about 10 computers on my system and only one is having this problem.

    Sounds like you have a mass mailling bug somewhere. One of my clients kept having this problem and we realted it to the NetSky.P worm. It tries to turn the pc into a mail server and start sending out spam. Not saying that this is what's causing it in your case but I would look into checking the pc for bugs.

    Is the SMTP service up and running on this pc ?

    Also do a NETSTAT -n from a command prompt and see if there isn't a few dozen connections to mail servers out on the Internet.
