Is it mail that you actually sent?
There are two scenarios that it could be. Three if you count a bad
address in your address book.
1) If you didn't send it: Sometimes someone will fake your e-mail
address as the sender and spam the world. All the "returned" mail is
then sent to your address. If you look at the actual mail header you can
sometimes figure out the actual sender and notify their domain that they
have stolen your address and using it to spam from their domain.
Otherwise just delete and move on.
2) If you sent it to a group: Some e-mail groups have the "return to"
path set to sender rather than the group. If someone drops out of the
group without unsubscribing you will get the returned mail notice. About
the only thing you can do in this case is let the group manager know so
they can delete the user. BUT, they probably already know because they
are getting them also when they post something.
I see that you are using Outlook Express 6. I use Thunderbird. In
Thunderbird I can just specify that these things are "junk" and
Thunderbird sends them to a different place where I can check them and
dispose of them by deleting later if it isn't something that needs my
attention, like a bad address in my address book.
The three best words in the English Language:
I LOVE YOU
Pass them on.
