I know it usually takes just a couple of days. However, this is going on 2 weeks now. The original incorrect email was sent on March 11th and it is still looping and trying to send it. It's nuts. I just got 2 notifications tonight.
Let me correct my last statement...I've actually received 4 notifications today. Just went back to count. I don't give a darn if it sends it or not. I know it's the wrong address. I got the message 100 times!
Ok- I will notify the Administrator of your posts. But- Since it is the weekend, he may not see it until Monday.

Thank you, but we need the lines that show who the message is from. It should look something like this:
Return-Path: email@example.com Received: from omta09.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net (LHLO omta09.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net) (220.127.116.11) by sz0018.wc.mail.comcast.net with LMTP; Sun, 25 Mar 2012 11:55:32 +0000 (UTC) Received: from qmta13.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net ([18.104.22.168]) by omta09.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net with comcast id pnpT1i00K5EsNzQ3VnvYZh; Sun, 25 Mar 2012 11:55:32 +0000 Return-Path: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Sun, 25 Mar 2012 11:55:32 +0000 From: Mail Delivery System <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Delivery status notification MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: multipart/report; boundary="------------I305M09060309060P_865813326765320"

OK, very good, thank you. Stripping the headers down to essentials, they look like this:
Received: from imta17.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net Received: from mta602.interealty.net ([22.214.171.124]) by imta17.westchester.pa.mail.comcast.net Received: from localhost (localhost) by mta602.interealty.net From: Mail Delivery Subsystem <MAILER-DAEMON@mta602.interealty.net> Message-Id: <201203242049.q2OKnd1U029092@mta602.interealty.net>
So Comcast is receiving those from a server called "mta602.interealty.net". The IP addess 126.96.36.199 is assigned to an organization called "First Advantage Membership Services INC" / "First American CREDCO" / CoreLogic. Contact information for them can be found at: http://whois.arin.net/rest/net/NET-69-87-48-0-1/pft.
I don't know if Comcast Customer Security Assurance can help you with this, but you can certainly call them and ask: 1-888-565-4329, 6am-2am Eastern time, http://security.comcast.net/get-help/contact-comcast-security.aspx. Until you can persuade First Advantage to stop sending the reports, the suggestion to set up an email filter is probably your best bet
It looks like someone/something/probably a spammer keeps sending email to that invalid address using your address as the sender. You don't use interealty.net for email, right? The bounces should contain the header of the original email, and posting a couple of them should give us a better idea of exactly what is going on. In general this isn't an unusual situation; spammers use addresses from their lists as the sender addresses. There's nothing you can do about it, but it should subside after a bit. The troublesome part from your point of view is where did the spammer get that invalid AOL address? It would be quite a coincidence if your having sent to that address was unrelated, and it suggests that your computer is compromised and that the spammer obtained that address by harvesting addresses from your computer.
