Spam Mail Plz Help

Dear All,
           I am getting lot of these kind of messages in 
users mailbox  "Your account has been used to send a 
large amount of unsolicited commercial e-mail messages 
during the last week. We suspect that your computer was 
infected by a recent virus and now contains a hidden 
proxy server.

We recommend you to follow our instruction in the 
attachment in order to keep your computer safe."
from unknown external id's. Somtimes we do get mails from 
administrator of the exchnage server and for the past few 
days the mails have become so frequent ,that all the 
users mailbox is flooded with this kind of messages. I 
havechecked the Anti virus is up to date on the Server. 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you all in anticipation

Regards & Thanks 
Priyank Gaddala

Your system may be a "relay" for senders of SPAM.  Once they find an open
relay they are pretty quick to exploit it.

I will assume you are Exchange 2000 since I didn't see a version below.

Reverse Lookup & Spam
Is it common for various corporations to use reverse lookup (ptr records) to verify e-mail and drop those that don't resolve as spam? I was planning to start running my own DNS servers so that I could allow clients more freedom in choosing their ISP without me dealing with the old ISP maintained DNS records. However, I remember a time when a client could not send mail (to GAP inc. in particular) turned out they use reverse lookups and would not accept mail until I had the ISP create the PTR records. So, if running my own DNS I would not have the authority to create the PTR record ...
