I keep getting message failure but they relate to messages not sent by me. some have been sent using my e-mail address but with a different name in front of the @. I use FSNET. what is happening, sdpysweeper hasn't found anything.

It's spam trying to get you to open the message up out of curiosity. Just delete.

It's a pain but it happens. Some people have nothing better to do.

my father has the same problem using a email. He has been told by wanadoo (orange) that anything sent to a similar address as his (i.e anything before the @ - followed by the the rest of his email) will come to his inbox. I installed spamdefender and after a few days establishing what is spam and what is not the problem is reduced.
