Help : A spammer is using my email address!

Posted 31 May 2006 - 05:12 AM

I don't know how, or why. But somehow a spammer is using my email address to send out spam messages. everytime I refresh gmail I get another 5 or so from Mail Delivery Subsystems saying my mail has failed a spam-bypass system, or my email has been blocked my the recipient.

A pseudo-adresse maybe? If this were true though, the mail-delivery subsystem would would send the spam message to the true sender. But then again, maybe the spammer changed the reply to adresse.
