Not to worry... it happens to me sometimes, too. Our TI firewall has all the
latest anti-virus screens but now and then I get an "undeliverable" e-mail
notice that something I sent out had a virus that was quarantined or that
the recipient was unknown. Of course, I didn't send that e-mail; I never
even heard of the addressee.
My guess as to what's happening is that our e-mail addresses are being
co-opted and used as spam virus return addresses. It does not mean that the
virus actually originated from who is listed as the sender.
Perhaps someone else has more/better info on this.

Subject: Re: Wicked screensaver - Warning - virus carrier - the other one
Your accusation has got me at a total loss. I do not have any virus's in my
computer and have had it professionally checked as well as using my up to
date Norton system.
I have only just arrived home from Bonneville having been away for over 3
weeks. I most certainly never sent any attachments out to anyone since being
home let alone any screensavers. In fact about the only out going mail I've
sent was to the list describing how Speedweek went for us.
Please explain what you received as your not even in my address book and how
this can be corrected.
This is another current big virus.
Emails with this Subject are carrying one of the current
virus infections as an attachment. Delete any with this subject,
don't be fooled thinking this is actually a screensaver.
In this case, it's good that the list removes attachments.
(Yesford has a bad case.)
