A spammer has harvested your email address and is using it in the
“From:” field on spams sent out to other people. This particular mail
server bounced back to your address instead of searching out where it
was actually sent from.

Close. In this case, it’s a virus and not a spammer that’s using Gary’s
address (probably one that selects both the “From:” address as well as the
“To:” address from files on the sender’s computer – addressbook, web cache,
etc.). It was caught and bounced by a virus scanner on a mailserver.

It is bad form for the owner of the mailserver to set the virus scanner to
send out such error messages. With most virsuses these days faking the from
address, sending out these messages just doubles the amount of junk mail the
virus generates.

I think this was no spamer.

It was one of this no update forever people with Outlock Express 5.
A virus on a system with this security hole had his email address some where
in the Temp internet folder or the address book and was used as the sender
