I get these fairly often on one of my accounts, if it not yours delete it, is almost certain to be malware of some description.

Get them all the time

Someone who has your email address in their address book has becaome infected with one of the many e amil viruses around. This takes all the addresses and sends out infected e mails using the addresses taken from the address book.

ISP and subscriber applications bounce the e mails back to the sender - i.e. you.

Don't worry about it.
