Outgoing Email Log

Over the last day I've got loads of message delivery failure  emails. I don't normally get much spam - I guess Plus is good at filtering it. However these storms happen from time to time and I always worry my PC has been hijacked. Is there any way I can see what, or how many, emails have been sent out by me through your mail servers?

Hiya,
It sounds like you're experiencing something called backscatter.
We, or rather I, can't easily see how many emails you've been sending, but you could always look at your sent items folder in your email client to see if there's been a recent influx there.

I doubt they use your own mail client when they hijack your pc. Certainly there's nothing odd about my Outlook directories. I just thought ISPs had to keep some logs for anti-terrorism purposes.
