    Did you send a message with an executable file attached (EXE)?

    If not, the most likely cause is that your email address has been used by a virus program on someone elses PC, and is "spoofing" the email to look like you sent it.

    Therefore any replies come back to you..

    Nothing you can do about it, apart from hunting down and cleaning up every PC that could have your email address in the address book.

    To be sure, and for peace of mind make sure you do a scan of your own PC with updated antivirus software though.

    Also, go back and Edit your post and change your email address to a false one, as spam "robots" trawl these (and all) forums and harvest all email addresses. That is how many get used for such viruses etc. Its NEVER a good idea to put your email address on any public forum, use a free disposable one such as hotmail etc.

    As I suggested, the problem lies on someone elses PC, in most cases.

    Nothing you can do in that case, except change your email address.
