    Every once in a while in my email i get hundreds of email from Mailer Daemon saying my mail didn't go through. When i see the hundreds of email addresses they were tried to send, they were all strange email addresses not recognizable to me. Recently this has started happening more frequently. It is very time consuming to delete all Mailer Daemon while trying to save my normal email from my inbox. Is my email hacked? How can i correct this problem? Thank you.

    To be safe, change your email password and make it a strong password.

    However it could be just that a spammer that has gotten your email address and using it to make it appear that his emails are coming from you, if that's the case it has nothing to do with your account and there's nothing you can do to stop it.

    You can generally sort email by subject or sender and then select and delete the emails in one or two clicks.
