Out Of Office Spam

I'm getting stacks of "Out Of Office" messages.
This just started yesterday.
Is there anything I can do to resolve this?
Thanks
Ross

Re: Out Of Office Spam

This may be a special case of 'back-scatter' ?  If so, your email address is being forged to send spam to lots of businesses -- because it's the weekend, these are generating the out-of-office messages that are being sent to you. It may be worth checking that your computer is not actually being used to send spam -- do a scan for trojans, etc.  Otherwise, the only cure for 'back-scatter' is patience -- it tends to die out in a few days.
