I am consistently getting a lot of email from Mailer Daemon with messages that my email is undeliverable. But these are not emails that I have sent. I would love some help to try to figure out what the issue is.

 

The suject of the emails is garbage like "great stuff for you" or some other spam type stuff. I found a similar case on the forum post here, which was very close to my issue. 

 

However in my case, the email addresses that have been sent spam under my email address sometimes *are* people from by address book, which leads me to believe that my account is compromised - instead of just some random spam sender impersonating my email address.

 

I have changed passwords and have ran antivirus software. 

 

Here is a example email with header and content:

To: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Subject: Warning: message 1bGQsy-000AZo-MJ delayed 48 hours

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.
A message that you sent has not yet been delivered to one or more of its
recipients after more than 48 hours on the queue on smtp04.mailcore.me.

The message identifier is:     1bGQsy-000AZo-MJ
The subject of the message is: great stuff for you
The date of the message is:    Fri, 24 Jun 2016 16:10:56 +0300

The address to which the message has not yet been delivered is:

  lskinner@ed.sc.gov

No action is required on your part. Delivery attempts will continue for
some time, and this warning may be repeated at intervals if the message
remains undelivered. Eventually the mail delivery software will give up,
and when that happens, the message will be returned to you.

 

 

I saved several of these messages. This is just a sample. I am concerned that my email address is being used to send spam to my contacts, but I do not know quite what's going on here. 

 

Any guidance or clues would be greatly appreciated! thanks!

@  602459175

 

Check your Sent folder to see if there are any messages in there you know you didn't send.  If there are then yes, the account has been hacked.  If not, you are most likely being spoofed.  If that's the case there is nothing to do but wait it out until the spammer moves on.  In the meantime, call Comcast security and ask them to look at the account------------------
