Windows 7: eMails Being Sent By Themselves ?

eMails Being Sent By Themselves ?

Hello,

Here's a really weird one.

Happened today, never before, on my iPad, and I see now also on my PC running W7. Using Thunderbird for my PC eMail.

Both the iPad's Mail, and the PC Thunderbird mail, seem to be trying to send eMails, by themselves, to parties I've never heard of.

The eMails gets bounced, with a msg. saying mailbox is unavailable, no such party, etc.

How can it be happening without my actually composing and sending an eMail ?

What might be going on ?

Virus, Malware possibilities, or...?

Any thoughts would be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Bob

I used to see this type of problem while supporting Outlook at a larger company. One thing that happened was, when sending mail to multiple addresses, when the mail server hit an address that didn't make sense, i.e., %%@non.com, the server would not send mail to any of the recipients that came after that address, in alphabetical order. When our users were setting up their address book, we often suggested using such an address as the first entry. That way, when a virus attacked the user's Outlook and tried to send a mass mailing out, the mail server would stumble on the first address and quit sending mail. We set up the server to send mail to the admin that alerted him to this type of activity, and the support team (including myself) would run to the rescue.
