I got this from the Korax mail account dilivery software:
This message was created automatically by mail delivery software. A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed: <!-- e --><a href=""></a><!-- e --> This message has been rejected because it has a potentially executable attachment "lqmkfss.exe" This form of attachment has been used by recent viruses or other malware.

Very simple, it was one of those virus programs that grab two mail addresses from the internet and send a virus mail to one of them in the name of the other. Now that I took down all e-mail addresses from the Korax website, with time both spam and such stuff should decrease.
