Lately I've been getting mailer daemon emails saying a message has failed to be sent, as well as notifications from my friends that I have been sending spam emails/ junk mail. I don't know what's going on, and I suspect it was some kind of inadvertently downloaded worm, virus, or spyware. What should I do? I worry I'll lose my e-mail address.
