my e mail address used as spam?

It is most likely that someone with your e mail address is their address book has been infected by one of the mass mailing worms.

This then sends e mails preporting to be from you to all and sundry. The first yopu know is when you suddenly get hit with lots of bounced e amils or someone contacts you saying you have been sending them e mail.

I suffered this when a work colleague got MyDoom, I used Mailwasher to screen the mail.
