    Did you send the email (do the names look familiar)?
    If they are known to you and are in your address book, and you sent a message to a lot of people, you have exceeded the number of people that the email server can cope with. Split into more groups.

    If you never sent the mail but they are from your address book, you may have a virus harvesting your addresses and sending out copies of the virus. Update your virus checking and clean up the PC.

    If you never sent the mail and do not know of the names then its likely that someone elses PC is infected, and they have your address on their PC. You address has been used by the virus as the "From:" address (spoofed) and the bounced message has come back to you. In this case its not your fault and absolutely nothing you can do.


    A little more background on what you have/have not done would have saved at least 2 of the above scenario descriptions, and some confusion however.
