Hi all,
Is any one receiving a virus or a worm that has an address similar to this,
W32mMydoom <mailto:W32mMydoom%[email protected]> [email protected] and it may state that it s
from the postmaster returning mail etc, etc. I corrupted the address so it
will not easily transmit? I have received several recently, luckily my
antivirus software spots and destroys it instantly.

It has been around for some years now, although it has mutated a bit.
If your anti-virus software detects it all is well.
It's probably just a renamed variant see, for example,

Thank you Christopher,
I had a definition from Norton but was just wondering what is source is by
elimination.
My anti virus software can track web borne viruses down to places and
display there approximate place of origin on a map via an IP address, but
does not seem to do this with e-mails and I tried to look at its properties
but it was confusing as to its origin.

It is always difficult to track down where email borne viruses are from
because more often than not the email address is faked using elements
of other addresses found in the senders mail software.
The only way to trace them is to look in the header to find the IP
address of the sending server and then check other legitimate emails to
see if you can find a match.
