Inordinate amounts of spam from system administrator

Hi everyone,
Yesterday morning I came into work only to find 5000+ NDRs sitting in my inbox since Friday.

Since then all day today all I've got for the past 24 hours is at least 1 email a second from either System Administrator or an external server telling me that the emails are undeliverable. To say I'm tired of deleting them is an understatement!

An example of the emails I'm getting:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

Subject: Viagra 100mg x 60 pills US $ 2.17 Per Pill buy now
Sent: 10/12/2007 15:12

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

cv1wzc2@colt.net on 10/12/2007 15:09
The e-mail system was unable to deliver the message, but did not report a specific reason. Check the address and try again. If it still fails, contact your system administrator.

Obviously it is all spam.
Any ideas how I can stop it? I've tried everything I could think of, including disabling NDRs but they still keep coming!

Many thanks,

Conrad

my guess is someone else is using your return address when they are sending spam out.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
