I received a bounced email I didnt send coming from my own domain! How? Why?

These emails are caused by spammers using your domain as the "reply to" address in their emails. This does not mean your computer or website is infected or insecure. Please ignore and delete them and NEVER open any unknown attachments. ;
The spammer masks your domains email address to fool the receiver into thinking its legitimate. This is commonly called "spoofing". Unfortunately, there is not much we can do since the spammer is originating on an external server. ;

Please note that they are not targeting you specifically. The spammer would be doing this for literally thousands of domains across the internet. They usually stop after a few days and move onto the next victim. The best remedy is patience
