What leads you to think this is happening?

If you are getting bounce messages for mail you didn't send, it's probably not 
your server being used, but your address being faked elsewhere.  

(It's happened to me - up to 1000 bounces in a couple of days, then nothing - 
and it was quite impossible that anything had been sent from my own machines, 
since at the time the mails were sent, they were switched off).
