    Is someone spoofing my email? Is this some sort of phishing scheme? What should I make of this email?

    I didn't attempt to email any of these people from my computer and I have no idea who they are !!!

    I am running ESET Smart Security Suite (ESS) and a scan does not reveal any issues or problems. My email app is MS Outlook 2002 SP3.

    Below is a screenshot of an email I received ...

    From: Mail Delivery Subsystem [MAILER-DAEMON@arthur5.advalem.net]
    To: (I grayed out my email address) ; postmaster@arthur5.advalem.net
