Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the
column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear
Webby Humor Letter.
This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly
because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

I have had a few mailer daemon returns like this one I just
Sorry. Your message could not be delivered to:
joshua croft,DCSD Mail (The name was not found at the
remote site. Check that the name has been entered correctly.)
The problem is I never sent a message to the delivery
addresses on these Daemon returns. Could spyware be using
my computer to send messages that I am unaware of. If so
what can I do about it?
There is a lot of spam coming out of comcast, so much in
fact that the blacklists flag it as bad. Part of that is
probably due to @comcast.net addresses being available
to spammers, who forge them as return addresses.
When spam, that has your address forged as the return
address, bounces back from a full or no longer working
address, it of course bounces to you.
Just make a filter with MailWasher to trash mail that has
your return or sender address but not your machine ID.
