Anyone seen this before?

A computer at $dayjob (running win-98 / Office 2k) was turned on today (this is a normal work PC) and it starts sending "Your message - To (the user of this PC), Subject, Date, was deleted (today)."

Everyone is getting these messages from this computer. Some of them date to 2006.

What would cause Outlook 2k to all-of-a-sudden do this?

A computer doesn't send messages, an account does, so you must know who sends the messages.

That person probably permanently deleted a big amount of old mails which were deleted without their status being changed to "read". If those mails were requesting "read receipts", all those read receiopts are sent at the same time stating that the emails were deleted without being read.

Most probably triggered by "Empty deleted Items" action... FROM THE USER.
