Email I never sent being bounced back

I never sent this email, yet it got bounced back to me. I'm assuming somebody forged an email using my name and sent it to pweekes@xxxxx.com  (note I changed domain so these arent the actual email addresses)

Pretty much every e-mail transmitted virus spoofs e-mail addresses these days - most of the time these addresses are read from other peoples address books.

Not much you can do about this - if someone spoofs your email address then this is NOT indicative of your own computer being insecure.
I would just delete these emails.
