You are a Blue Frog member and presently members are under attack with spam. I'm sure you've read about the attacks via the The Blue Zone Blog:

The Blue Zone

I continually send these "Mail Not Delivered" and similar notices to Blue Security for their evaluation.

Selma pretty much covered the reason. I have gotten so many of these in the last few days and all seem to come from my email address, yet none have. Emails do get spoofed. I have some tell me of email delivery failure of people I have been in contact with! Never heard of any of these people.

See:

Email Spamming and Email Spoofing
