Outlook sending mail by itself

By gerhard.siebert ·
One of my users discovered that people phone him and tell him there is nothing in his mail.

When you go to sent items there is nothing and no indication that he sent it but the other person said he recieved a blank mail at say 12pm and when you go to sent items there are no mails sent out at 12pm

I scanned the mailbox eith mcaffee and the latest dat files and def files

Please can someone help????

First rule out pranks, is it a blank auto responder? has user been trying to set up 'Rules'? could it be out of office reply?

when you know what it is tell me please i could use this feature! thats my best shot.

Funny... nothing in sent mail? Weird, the person who rang up and said..there is nothing in your email... was this guy's contact was on the sender's contact list? If it was... it could be a virus, hiding there somewhere, and when the user opens it they get affected too! But it could be auto reply feature enabled or something. Open outlook and wait and see and record the pattern like the time it sends and such, try removing the person't contact on the contact list, still same thing happens? It could be a spoofed email as well. What you do, the person who received the email, look carefully into the email's headers, the bits where it shows the sender's ip and which network it came from etc... so you can better understand where this email came from and such.
Hope that helps :)
