My user has a Google account for SMTP and a prodigy.net.mx account for POP. He is getting these hundreds of delivery status notification (failure) that contain a porn link. (Never clicked on the link but the wording is porn).

Any ideas on how I can stop this?

Here's what was in one of the emails, minus the bad language and with an xxx before any email addresses:

From:
"Daniel Mcintyre" <xxx@prodigy.net.mx>
