    I have just received an email from WorldSecure Server. It states...

    "The Internet Email Gateway does not accept file extensions of this type.
    This is an automated response. Please do not respond to this email
    address.
    Your message was only partially delivered because some virus-infected
    attachments were removed.

    You may wish to resend all or part of the message after removing the
    viruses from its attachments."

    However I have not sent any emails lately with attachments (let alone one that contained anything with a suspect extension). Would this WorldSecure Server warning be from my email carrier? Would it be possible to inquire and ask for more information about this suspect email?

    Sounds like someone who has your email address in their address list has a virus and it is harvesting addresses and sending mail.

    What does your email header say?

    I dug around and found a reference to a similar problem. You are using Clam AV?
    You might want to check with them.

    Thank you for the feedback ronjor, it is much appreciated. Actually Clam AV appears to be the AV my email carrier is using ;)

    Is this email a normal reply when Clam AV detects a suspicious attachment?

    So you have no infection?

    As far as Clam AV, my knowledge is nil.

    I do not believe that I do, but will be sure to look into it more. Might be a false positive in ClamAV? Emails I am sending now seem to be ok and arriving at their destination, though Im sure that can not be taken as a clear indication these days :doubt:
