Undeliverable message

This is to alert you that there have been hundreds of “undeliverable” messages yesterday into today. It is the result of spammers/phishers spoofing some of our email addresses as the “from” address on emails “to” their own email address that have virus-laden attachments. The virus-laden attachments are being stripped/deleted by Exchange Online Protection, which result in the sender-recipient receiving a warning that the email  they “sent” (but didn’t actually send) had a virus that was removed.
