Symantec warning: "Your email message was unable to be sent because your mail server rejected the message"
Posted on 2006-07-13
My computer has become unuseable due to the hundreds of outgoing emails to what seems random users. Symantec floods my screen with messages saying "Your email message was unable to be sent because your mail server rejected the message". I have followed your instructions in a previous 2004 post but had no success, also did not see a root cause in this post. I do have the executable that infected my machine if that helps. I am running Windows XP pro sp2 and my email client is MS Outlook 2003 with an exchange account. My NAV is 2005 Corporate edition ver. 10.0.0.359. This virus seems to work independent of my mail client. I can stop NAV from displaying all the warnings if I choose not to configure "Internet E-Mail Auto-Protect" however I would prefer to find the root cause and get rid of this adware/virus. Re-formatting is not an option.
