I got a message saying that an email I sent was undeliverable.  I didn't
send any email to this party.  I have received several such messages.  Is it
possible that my computer has some sort of virus that is sending messages
from my computer?  If that is possible, how can I learn about it and what
can I do?

The message I got was the following:

Subject: Sale Cialis USD28 Ambieen
