    :confused: I just started getting returned email from various addresses stating that my sent email was returned ( I wish I had saved them so I could be more specific). I never sent these emails out. Im also receiving emails from various addresses which contain errors (they have attachments that I did not open). I just started receiving these after I enabled the spam assassin. Does this have anything to do with it? Im really lost. Thanks!!!

    Sounds like a spammer is spoofing your email address to send out his/her spam.

    Go on, have a guess
    If your email address is being spoofed as the From address for spam, there is, effectively. nothing at all that you can do about it.

    If you lease your server, you might want to alert your provider just incase that they can any spam reports that falsely point to you as the perpetrator.
