Is all this SPAM showing up in your "Sent" items folder?
If not, this is probably a case of your email address being "spoofed" as the sender - by a bot using your return address.

I would make sure to have a strong password for your email account.  It should be at least 8 characters, with both letters and numbers in it.  10 characters would be even better.
