Message showing up in outbox that I did not create subject:report frau

I noticed a message in my outbox the other day that I didn't create.  The send was completed before I was able to stop it.  I have subsequently changed my outlook settings so that I have to manually send mail.  The message appeared again today waiting in the outbox.  I checked it out and it appears to be sending some file information; as the body of the mail contained the following information:
Matador Version:

The address it was sending to is: ''

Also the message that did send did not show up in the sent items folder.

Is this activity familiar to anyone concerning a trojan, virus, malware or anything else?  My A/V is not finding anything.
