Problems sending mail in Windows Live Mail (and Windows Mail)

  1. I don't understand why you are addressing me personally.
    You quoted from a thread I wrote in response to another user, not you.

    It sounds to me like your computer has been compromised by some
    malware infection. If it was my computer, I'd wipe everything and install
    a fresh copy of Vista.

    Gary, suppose I wanted to copy the data in the popup window within Registry
    on the 2nd key location for the data - How can I make it paste cause a right
    click occurs but that the data it supposedly copied is not copied when I
    paste it to Notepad or other text program. Is it a HEX program I should use
    to paste HEX Data, if so where do I obtain a HEX program which would do the
    paste into like Notepad paste into works for a Text File?

    My problem stems from some email error that is sending a email to a
    recipient that runs in background without my knowing it is doing that when a
    new email arrives in Windows Mail it is automatically forwarded and then a
    error is seen by their server and it is marked as SPAM and returned to me in
    a two file type attachment with the explaination it is marked as SPAM.

    This was happening to every email received my mother, father, and other
    emails I have addresses online that work OK with Windows Mail. Right now I
    got 77 emails that have been errored and many others that actually went
    through to the server without my knowing and I did not know how to stop it
    from sending to the recipient. I figured that the recipient address was
    coming from somewhere but I had no idea that maybe it was stored in the
    registry like you have described and all of the recent emails sent can be
    deleted within the particular KEY. So I have decided to delete them all like
    you advised after looking in the Registry and hope that will end the behind
    the scenes sending of a email when received to the recipient. If you got
    another solution please tell me right now what else I can do which will stop
    the sending to that recipient, OK, I will do that as well.

    It just happened again three times to the recipient.
    How do I stop Windows Mail from sending my emails to him?
