Exchange 2007.
In the last 3 hrs, I have received hundreds of emails that contain NDRs.
It appears that my email address is being supplied as the 'Reply To' address, and that is why I am getting them.
Does anybody know:
1) Why and how somebody would have obtained my email address to insert into the 'Reply To' field?  Could my email address have been a target of a 'harvest bot'....I have heard that term in the past.
2) How do I prevent my Exchange Server from forwarding them to my emailbox?
