Hi Everyone,

I got the below email from Mail Delivery Subsystem but it is definitely something I did not send?

When I woke the mac from sleep today itunes said it could not complete a request? and my airport had disconnected prompting me for my admin password and username.

Does anyone think this is connected?

    I doubt that it is from Apple. There are many reasons for a disconnect. I doubt this e-mail is part of it. IMHO.

    I to received mail apparently from myself. For example : RE: 70% OFF! Hurry, 1 Day Left! ...... from :
    I have been using the 'Bounce' option to return unwanted spam and it might have something to do with the situation.
    I don't know if the following site is involved in resolving 'Bounced' mail :

    But it includes the msadcenter address.

    I shall try and research this further and/or contact by ISP and see what they say.
