    Good morning. 

     

    If you are getting emails of this nature, but have not sent out email to the addresses listed as undeliverable, we suggest that you first scan your computer and devices for malware and viruses.  The description you have provided does point towards someone sending out emails using your address without your knowledge. We do suggest that you do the scan offline, and do change your email password right away.

    Hello,

    MAILER-DAEMON, is usually a response from your provider that a sent email did not go through.  That is something that you would not want to stop.  If you look at the header of the message it might say "invalid recipient" or "Mailbox full." or "Address does not exist."  Best guess is that you are sending an email to someone who's address is not valid.  It is returning that message back to you.  If this recipient is a trusted sender with whom you communicate, you will need to ask them for their new email address and put that in your Contacts List.

    I’m getting 20+ in a day. They are not emails that I have sent.

    The same thing is occurring to my account as well with the exception I have received over 210returned email in less than 3 days.  I have changed my password multiple times which does not work.
