Email address hijacked

Hi,

On checking my email tonight, I have received around 100 email delivery failure messages. Obviously someone is sending out spam using my email address domain (I have my own registered domain). The format is random chars>@mydomain.co.uk

Is there anything I can do to stop my address being used in this, or should I contact my ISP or company that I have my domain registered with (and email forwarding)?

Thanks in advance

If you have a look there have been loads of threads over the past weekend describing the same problem. Basically one or more of your contacts has got a virus that is harvesting addresses from their contacts and sending out e-mails. It should subside in a few days.

sorry, made a newbie mistake of not searching the forum first. Thanks
