Emial issue-- am I a bot?

So I have an email address that I have had for years and is used in my business and some personal. All of a sudden I am getting hundreds, maybe even over a thousand, "mail returned undelivered" messages. Have 241 this morning alone. I changed my password but it is still happening. I have mcafee and have done two full systems scans and it says I have 0 issues (which I would assume means mcafee is being blocked somehow).



Any suggestions?


Thanks for the help
Bob

Is this an email address that actually links to an internet business?

Is it something like Bob@Soupman.com?

Or is it Soupman@Yahoo.com?

Are you sending bulk emails?

have you looked at the headers in the 'returned' text?
Are they actually delivered from your email address and/or provider
OR
Have they simply used the 'return to address' and been delivered from another address ?

The address is bob@leasefundings.com and it is linked with a web site. I haven't been active all summer and I haven't really sent any business mail. I don't send out spam or bulk emails. Just direct emails to contacts that I have.


The returns look like below, and some have what I think are russian lettering.

I'm thinking I just might have to give up this email.

You should delete McAfee and download Avast, McAfee is always randomly popping up on my laptop and every time it says the same thing “you may have issues with your computer, please click this link for a package deal” something like that. So I click on the link and it’s a pdf of a package for around $200.00. But unless you have a better McAfee than mine than I’m sorry.

It looks like your website's email server has been hacked (not your personal home computer).

You need to contact the admin of the web hosting company that has your website and have them scan and check all their SERVERS.

I was the webmaster for my kids' nursery school and Russians got into our vps server and started using it to blast out spam. For our email service we had a quota of 300 emails/day sent, anything over that and it would cost us 10 cents per email. I caught it early so the damage wasn't too bad. We could see that the servers were being probed about every 10 seconds and the IP addresses were traced to 4 or 5 countries. They were always Russia, China, N. Korea and sometimes India.
