Strange notes from Postmaster@verizon.net

[ Edited ]

A few days ago I started to get about 20 strange messages from: Postmaster@Verizon.net.  The subject is: Delivery Notification: Delivery has failed.  The message goes on to indicated an email sent by my account to random people I don't know was not deliverable becaus the address does not exist.  The itmestamp indicates the original messages were sent at a time when my computer was turned off.

 

I checked and my sent folder does not contain these messages, virus scan by Verizon tools and Norton indicates my machine does not have a virus.

 

Has someone been spoofing my email name and sent messages to random people?  When the messages hit an unknown account I get the error at my in-box??

 

Can anyone help me understand what's going on???  Sample message with my email name removed appears below.

Re: Strange notes from Postmaster@verizon.net

nds to me like your account has been hacked and someone's been using it to send dictionary spam. Change your password, secret answer, and run a virus scan. It's better to be safe than sorry.
