Infected e-mails

I have received an e-mail from someone I don't know which asks why am I sending him infected e-mails. These are spotted by his AV software. I am not sending such e-mails. How can this occur and how can we stop it?

It occurs because someone who has you in their address book is infected; most worms send mails using a spoofed address to make it harder to work out where they are coming from.

Not much you can do about it - he may be able to check out the headers of the mail and work out where it originates but that is not a simple task.
