the address it was bounced back to is not real. This is standard=20

There's also the LoveSan and Blaster virus going around so your mail=20

hit my computer or bounce them if they manage to sneak through.

It comes with a subject line that changes but usually is something

"Your application" or "Records", or something that looks legitimate.

So beware the *.pif attachment! Delete or bounce away!

So far, I have received twenty to twenty five Mailer Daemon messages -
false messages. Has this happened to anyone else? And does anyone know
what to
do about it?

I have no idea what to do about it but, if it continues tomorrow, I
will call
the MAC store and see if they have a solution.

Does anyone else have this problem? You probably shouldn't open
anything from
the   Mailer Daemon unless you are pretty sure where it might come from
