I have had several notifications of undelivered mail that was not sent by me. The most recent one had an attachment in what looked like Russian language.
The note said " The Postfix program <anatoly@megastyle.com>:host mail.megastyle.com{193.108.248.4]said: 550 <anatoly@megastyle.com>: User unknown in local recipient table (in reply to RCPT TO command) ".
What does this all mean? Has somebody hijacked my computer and sending out information and copies of emails? I have Norton Antivirus which is updated regularly.

Spammers!

Spammers are sending emails that Look like you've sent them.

Can also be someone with a virus that is imitating your address. If you use a firewall like Zonealarm or kerio, it will tell you if it you that is sending them. If not, then your e-mail address is being "spoofed".
