    email address abused for spam

    I got a Delivery Status Notification today for an email I never sent.

    That email was more than obviously a spam message sent to someone using MY email address. Is there anything that can be done about email addresses being abused for something like that?

    your pc is infected by a virus, worm, or trojan. try to get the newest virusprotection (also for mail), don't trust freeware, it's nice for the beginning but didn't protect against everything.
    clean your pc.

    the thing is though, that I am not using a mail client on my computer but I am just using webmail (gmail) which I think does not really have anything to do with the computer I am using!

    The name that was with my email address there was not mine either, which looks to me more like that kind of spam that is abusing some (fake) email address... in this case mine...

    Why don't you forward the returned email to the abuse department of your email provider? Usually the address is abuse@emailprovider.com (e.g. abuse@hotmail.com or abuse@yahoo.com etc.).

    Still, I think it can't hurt to update Anti-Virus and Spyware software and run a check on your PC.

    just don't open crap like that !!!!!you probably have some malware installed right now.they didn't use you email account to send out a message ,that was a trick so you open it .

    unfortunatly that doesn't mean anything .MS just fixed a security gap where you didn't even have to open the attachment in order to get infected .
