    unfortunately there is little that you can do to stop this, it is the plague of the 21st century. What is happening is that a spammer uses your domain suffix to send mass mails with a garbage prefix or with a known email adress that is collected by phishing. These mails are usually to deliver content without providing a reply address for the recipient as the reply is contained in the body.

    the spammer uses an algorythm to create possible usernames at the recipients end  as most smaller domains have a single mailbox and may pick up this message. This may happen 1000s or 1000000s of time, true to the principle if you throw enough mud some will stick.

    The rejects usually happen silently at the recipient and you end up with the NDR.

    So what can you do? You can buy an AntiSpam filter that filters NDRs in a depository that sits before your mailserver/client so you can browse for important content, or if you have an online account marks it as SPAM so it goes straight in the bin.

    As said this is a pain, but one that everybody has to deal with unfortunatel, but also certainly none that you should lose sleep over either...

    All the best, hope this helps
