Hi Laura-Lou,

There is little to nothing you can do about this. The e-mail in question most likely does not originate from you or your SMTP server. If someone you know is accusing you, have them use spam cop, which will indicate to some degree the actual source of the e-mail. Although the origin may be from within the same isp, based on the odds, that is not the case.

My guess is that someone who has you in their address book, is infected with a robot virus. That virus/robot may be pulling your e-mail address out of the hat, to be the originator of the spam.

From the spammer's/virus author's point of view, it makes it *more* likely the spam will be read and possibly acted upon.

Most folks "hear" about their domain being forged when they gat hammered with bounced, non-deliverable e-mail. It happens so often that a FAQ (Frequently Asked Question) entry exists. check the Forum FAQ, look for the entry "Why am I getting all these bounces? Updated! "

I've got three mails "delivery failed", there is one of the them:

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at aussiecom.com.

I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
