Email Address Spoofed

Last Modified: 2016-09-30
I manage my own mail and I have an email address that I have used for years that my family can send messages to and it will automatically send those messages to everyone on the Family List. The address looks something like this - FamilyList@mydomain.net. Recently I have encounters a problem with this address and I am getting the following messages back from the individual addresses on this list. The messages look like this -
A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a temporary error. The following address(es) deferred:

  username@gmail.com
    Domain mydomain.net has exceeded the max emails per hour (58/50 (115%)) allowed.  Message will be reattempted later"

This is followed a few minutes later by this -

"This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

 username@juno.com
    Domain mydomaint.net has exceeded the max emails per hour (63/50 (126%)) allowed.  Message discarded.
  username@gmail.com
    Domain mydomain.net has exceeded the max emails per hour (63/50 (126%)) allowed.  Message discarded.
 username@cinergymetro.net
    Domain mydomain.net has exceeded the max emails per hour (63/50 (126%)) allowed.  Message discarded.
  username@gmail.com
    Domain mydomain.net has exceeded the max emails per hour (63/50 (126%)) allowed.  Message discarded.

There is an entry like this for every single address on this Family List (and there are quite a few because we have a very large family). None of the recipients are reporting getting massive amounts of emails from this address or from my domain but this problem is very annoying and I would appreciate any help in resolving this. What do I need to do and what could have possibly caused this?

Thank you.
