MAILER-DAEMON@yahoo.com - Failure Notice?

Hi all.

 

In the last week, I am getting "failure to deliver" notices for different recipients emails that where not sent by me!  I get about 3 - 4 a day now.  What has happened?  See below for example:

 

Received: from localhost (jolo0924@201.156.xxx.xxx with login)       

by smtp146.mail.ukl.yahoo.com with SMTP; 15 Dec 2012 16:28:51 +0000 GMT
Date: Sat, 15 Dec 2012 08:00:53 -0700 (PDT)
From: Matthew Farmer
<jxxxxxxx@btinternet.com>
Subject:

To: "tom.farmer@earthlink.net" <tom.farmer@earthlink.net>

This may explain it.

Receiving mail not addressed to you?

 

It also applies to failure messages, its just spammers faking your e-mail address.

Thank's for the quick reply.  So quite common I suppose.
