Hi All,

Not quite sure where this thread belongs :thumbsup:

I received 2 failure delivery messages that make it look like I tried to send mail to a bunch of people I don't know. These messages are from "System Administrator", but when I click on email sender(System Administrator) to find out any more information, Outlook has no more info - all the fields are blank. Edit: I found one non-empty field - the display name is listed as "." (dot).

Normally, when I get one of these messages I check the message headers by viewing the message "options", but these messages didn't have any(!!!)

Is there any way I could send a test message as "System Administrator" or have Exchange send me such a message to compare the fields that my Exchange server inserts to the ones in the suspect messages?

Edit: On editing and seeing a display name of ".", I'm fairly certain this is just spam, but I think I'll leave the message posted in case anyone has similar questions.
