Every ten days or so I get a batch of weird emails that appear to be eminateing from my VPASP store v5.50 I have 3 stores running, a 4.5 and two 5.50 All are actually on the same domain with redirects handled by my ISP to the unique domain for each store, but the emails only ever come from one of the domains.

The emails appear to be empty or just contain gibberish.

Here is an example...

and the header for this email is...

Anyone any idea if this is being caused by my mail server ? or is it a virus that has been neutered by either my ISP or virus scanner (nortins) before it gets to me ?

They allways arrive in batches all at the same time, allways with bogus random return addresses on my domain.

This is caused by spammers using your email address in their own software.

We have had this happen to 2 of our domains. The only way to stop receiving the bouncebacks is to turn the Catch-All feature off on your mail server.

Thank you
