    I've been getting scores of failure notices because someone is using my email account - tbstauffer@yahoo.com - and sending bogus emails to addresses that fail. Can you help me to get this stopped. The names beside my address in the error messages all vary.

    Hello,

    The problem you are experiencing is known as a Joe Job.

    There isn't much you can do about it. You'll likely need to wait it out for a few weeks.

    If you have the full headers from the original email you can try filing abuse reports with the spammers ISPs.

    Would you like help with checking the full headers and submitting some abuse reports?

    Many of my verizon.net addresses have been getting kicked back, yet I can send to the same person from another account and they go through
