Suspicious e-mail from the e-mail server

I have a question about a possible new ruse used by hackers/slammers. Recently, I have noticed some emails purporting to be from the mail server informing me that an e-mail or a number of emails were not delivered on the subject line. Since I did not sent out any e-mail prior to receiving these, I just deleted them. Has anybody else encountered such subterfuge recently? Thank you.


Unless the e-mail asks you to do something, or contains malware in the message/attachment, it is just a nuisance.
