Some one is sending hundreds of mails using my email address.
Ultimately i get these mails back to me as " Returned mail: see transcript for details " , "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)" , " failure notice ".
This clearly shows some one is using my email address and sending thousands of spam mails. and all the email address bounce back to me.
this shows some one is misusing my email address.
How can i stop this from happening.

Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do to stop the emails from being sent. But if you set up SPF [google.com] on your domain, it will allow other people who are using SPF to block the spams that are using your address.
