My email being used by someone else

I keep getting a mail delivery failed: returning message to sender to gbruckner@aol.com but I never sent to this and I have never heard of this email.

What can I do about this?

Not a lot unfortunately.
It happens to us all and it's just some spammer that has harvested your address and is using it for the moment.
Just ignore it and it should stop when they move on and use some other poor sods address. Sad

My email being used by someone else

Like mine Cheesy

Had the same with one of my domains recently which was previously spam free. It wasn't getting spam, but being used to send it and I was getting a load of failure reports, plus loads of other stuff like people's auto responders when they are away from the office, etc.

Still at least it's gone down from 250 overnight, to 9 (just checked) - so either less is being sent, or their victim's list is more accurate.
