This is ridiculous. I'm getting dozens and dozens of 'undeliverable' replies from postmaster accounts.  I've got to be sending spam from this domain, but I cannot figure out how.  I've been running several anti-virus and anti-spyware programs, I always run a firewall program, hell, I've set my Mozilla thunderbird to offline except the 5 seconds I actually check my mail every hour.  What the fuck?  Maybe I should talk to my hosting company?  Get them to reset my mail password?  I don't know what's up.

Run Zonealarm. It's a firewall that requires your permission for programs to access the internet. If you have a program doing things you don't know about, that'll tell you.

It is also possible that someone is spoofing your email address when they send out spam, so the messages go to you instead of them. Other than covering tracks I don't see what advantage that would be, but it's possible.

Actually I've been running ZA since this summer after getting rid of memory-chomping Norton. I had this problem a year ago and it was decided that it was simple spoofing, and I hope that's what it is this time too. But it started all at once and has been going steady everyday for weeks since then, so it's strange to me.
