I have been getting a TON of messages/viruses of this type lately. I get at least 10-20 messages of this type a day. Here are a variety of the subject headers and file attachments these messages come with:

Subjects:
Error Report
Abort Letter
message
Report
Undelivered Message: User unknown
Returned Message User unknown
Advice
Failure Letter

From:
Internet Email Storage
Microsoft Inet Message Delivery System
Inet Email Storage Service
Microsoft Inet Storage System
Net Mail Storage System
inet email service
admin
MS Net Mail Delivery System
Postmaster

Attachments:
hlinjp.exe
gztrst.exe
eozgvts.exe
fohag.exe
dcnzhjn.exe

...and so on. Basically, they are all exe files with a random string of characters before the .exe extention. I don't know if this is just myself who's having this problem, but I can't see how that could be the case. Anybody know if what this is and how to stop it??

yeah, I got 'em for a couple weeks. I just blocked 'em and waited it out and they eventually stopped. I have even unblocked the addresses (my spam address box only allows 100 blocks) and nothing is coming to them.
