Why am I getting "undeliverable" email about emails I didn't send?

Spammers sometimes impersonate another user in the From address when they send out mail. They may send unwanted email to millions of addresses, and any bounced messages then get sent to you (these bounced emails you get are called backscatter). While it is annoying, it does not mean your account has been hacked.
