Question: Fraudulent Yahoo e-mail Failure Notices

It appears someone is using my Yahoo e-mail sever to send junk mail. Hundreds of failure notices are being returned to my Yahoo e-mail address. None of the "To:*" are from contact list. I do not know them. I am not sending these e-mails. What is going on?

iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2013), macOS Sierra (10.12.6)

Answer:
Answer:

What's going on is a spammer is spoofing the return address in their mail, listing you as the sender.

There's not much you can do about it. This has nothing to do with Apple, your mac, or any Apple product or service.

You can try contacting Yahoo about it, but chances are, there's nothing they can do about it either.
