They're the MIME headders for the reply from hotmail saying that your email wasn't sent right?

that is about right.....

the question is who is the email being sent to?

I dont know any of the email address below and have no idea as to why they are in the error message.

I am stump here, one thing I would suggest is send a test e-mail to the wrong yahoo address & see if you get the same thing again.

or just forget about it :p :D

Now this sounds a bit OTT (over the top) but ....

You are not full up with virus/malware/trojans etc that are broadcasting to these addys, via an unknown BCC leech?

It really does appear that the report is saying who got/did not get the e-mail. That all those people were on your recipient list should cause a mild sense of panic?

I have tried to send mail to the same wrong address and got a normal bounce with no strange extra address.

I have tryed about 10 diffrent ways and can not recreate the error with odd address in it.

I have sent a copy of the message to tech support at hotmail and we will see what they make of it.

the message in question was not that private but I would like to know what is going on none the less.

It was probably the Government snooping on your email traffic.
They can do that now
