    I just logged to my email and i saw 24 new messages...

    all were saying that delivery failed...
    i opened my sent emails folders and i saw that i have sent 15-20 emails to my contacts saying things like:
    check this out "URL"
    dont miss this "URL"
    etc. etc.

    wtf is that? its the first time something like this is happening to me :|
    I will run my anitvirus-antispyware-antimalmware tomorrow .. i hope its not something bad :|

    Someone hacked you. Check the security of your account, change passwords, update scripts, etc...

    I have it happen to me every few years. Last time they sent emails to my Landlord and Boss and Grandparents advising them that I see best results for my erectile dysfunction by ordering Viagra from a China based online Pharmacy.

    Mostly they collect the information from Scripts on Phishing sites and save it up for months before using it, so its usually not a result of a virus. Change password, change security questions. Best you can do.

    if they are errors, i doubt that you were manually hacked. its likely you have some malware on your system thats made a piss poor job of spamming your email account. I would advise updating your AV and doing a system scan.

    If you are signing up for services that require your email and you are using a standard password... then that is the prob. What ever the case, just change your pass word on your email account and you should be fine

    Not 100% someone hacked you, they could be impersonating you, so to speak. The most important part is the headers, if the emails bounced, check the origin. I wouldn't worry unless they were really sent from/through your server and/or your computer. Check the IPs and origin.

    Yeah, they could simply be impersonating you. Some scripts can take your contact list, fake sender, and send emails to all your contacts.

    In your case the "delivery failed" messages would be bounced back to your actualy email.
