I get these delivery failure notices in groups. There might be 6 at a time all seeming to be from different places. These are coming from e-mail address I have not e-mailed. I am getting annoyed with them. I am sure these are scams of some sort. Has anyone else had this happen. This has been going on for about a month.

It means someone is using your email address as a return address when sending out spam. If your email addy is on your website, this will happen to you sooner or later. We had it happen frequently enough a few years ago that we changed our outgoing email address so it wouldn't get marked as spam. Sorry to say, there's nothing much you can do about it.

Oh great. At least you gave me some idea of what this is.

Same as what muirford said. We haven't had it happen in awhile, but it is bound to, it can't be helped. You can 'disguise' your email addy on your website but I think it just makes it harder for real people to use. I can't remember exactly how to do that. And you'd have to disguise it on any website it appears on.
