Question about Microsoft Outlook 2000 (543-00638) for PC
Everytime someone sends me an email message, my Outlook 2000 sends out a blank message to them automatically. I do not have any autoreply feature turned on - either within Outlook or my ISP. This has been happening for about a month. I have uninstalled Microsoft Office 2000 and then reinstalled it, but that has not helped.
Who is your email provider? If they support server rules it's possible that you turned on a vacation reply or out-of-office reply online that is generating these messages to be sent from your account. ( You might be able to check whether the message was sent immediately after the sender emailed you, or only after you downloaded your mail into OUtlook. That will tell you whether the problem is with your installation of outlook or at the ISP/email provider level)
Otherwise, here and here are a couple of good sites that have helped me to answer many outlook questions over the years. Perhaps you can find a solution there.
Another good place to pose your question would be the MS Outlook Discussion Groups here.
That behavior could be caused, I suppose, by a corrupt mail profile. But I would think reinstalling Office would take care of that.
If you suspect malware could play a hand in it, I recommend this malware removal guide.
Sorry I can't offer something more definite.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I am assuming you have anti virus software but if not you should get the free version of AVG.
I also recommend downloading MalwareBytes and also doing a scan with that... Malwarebytes is an excellent spyware cleaner that finds many problems other dont.
