Fake emails using my address

I recently received an out of office autoreply from an address at a large corporation with the subject line "Free Porn". The offending email had my address as the return address. :shock:

My machine is virus free but I'm guessing someone somewhere with my email address has one of the netsky varients running amok.

Do I need to worry about my address being blacklisted as a spammer? I sent a email to the person in question explaining that it did not come from me but wonder if this was taken further.

Even if you were blacklisted there is probably little you can do about it anyway.

This is a very comman occurance (spoofed email address) so the chances it will actually effect the use of your email address is low.

Thanks for the reply. I won't worry about something I can't do anything about then!
