Might a Virus be at work??

I have noticed in my emails that recently I am receiving undeliverable messages about emails I have not sent. they come with an address I know nothing about. I have looked in my "sent" folder but there is nothing there. Could I have a virus sending emails from my machine? or are they likley to be traps to get me to open the mail so it can down load a virus. I always check my mail with my blueyonder webmail first and delete all the junk before opening outlook express to read and reply. My AV prog (virgin's PC Guard) reports no virus on my machine.

Any thought's.

Below is a copy of a typical returned message. I have removed all links & addresses. all writing in capitol letters are my changes. so there should not be a problem.
