Huge numbers of Undeliverable email messages

Is my PC infected or has my email address been "stolen"?

My email address has the format [email protected]. This is the only valid address for my email, I am the only user. However, my ISP does allow
multiple other names all of which are [email protected].

Every day I receive dozens of messages from various companies' email systems
addressed to [email protected] telling me that messages sent from "anothername" are undeliverable. I have not sent any of these messages. There are numerous other name prefixes being used.

No infection is found on my PC by numerous A-V and anti-spyware programmes.

Everything is up-to-date, patched, etc. Even when my PC has been offline for a few days, these messages still arrive.

Has my email address been "stolen" and used by a spammer? How can I stop these messages?

The email address shown here is not the actual email address, only an example. Alan

It was posted some time ago now, but it seems very similar to the problems you are now suffering with.
