Likely either a mail bot on his PC sending spam from his computer (AVG or similar malware program can remove this), or a mail bot elsewhere using mail address spoofing (Pretends to be from his mail address) so he gets the bounce even though he never sent anything.

If you don't have one installed, download a malware scanner like AVG, run a scan on the PC, if he has a mail bot on his PC that will remove it. If it is not on his pc and he is getting bounced mails due to a mail spoofing, as far as I knowm the best thing you can do is set up an outlook rule to delete them on receipt so he doesn't see them.

If it is mail spoofing, the only working solution I am aware of is SPF (Sender Policy Framework), you'd have to add some information to your "Zone File", either yourself or your Domain provider.  You'll find details on the links below.

But even this is not foolproof as it depends on the server receiving the mail to support it, unfortunately thats the best there is at the moment.  there si no permanent foolproof solution available as yet.

I am sure its because of spyware as i think i am looking in past when they were used to store password as well so think so this might be the case as well
