Arrgh!

I now know that the nazi-spam that I have received earlier is the result of a virus, which apparently leaves some files on infected machines, and then mails itself out to addresses found on the infected machine. I now find that such spam has passed out with my mail-address as the sender-address - I received the amiler-daemon response of failed delivery. I know with some degree of certainty that it was not mailed from my computer (although newsreports have suggested that the virus uses the infected machine's own addresses as sender address) - I switched the computer off shortly after midnight last night, andnow, at 2pm, it's still off, and the spam went out at 9am this morning. Nevertheless - this is highly annoying.
