Why am I getting bouncebacks for messages I didn't send on mail id

Hi Friends,

So my guess is someone spoofed your domain and sent emails looking like you and you are getting the bounce emails because of that. While you can set up SPF records and tweak some domain settings, I have not seen a 100% way to stop domain spoofing.

It still Not resolved and not even godaddy team is helping for the same

As mentioned in my previous reply - the reason you would be getting this is someone spoofed your domain - this means they setting up an email program to send out email and make it look like it is coming from you. One way to reduce the likely hood of the receiving mail server accepting the email to begin with is to set up an SPF record in your DNS which says to only accept email from a certain server.

 

Other than that, there is no way that I am aware of to 100% prevent someone from "spoofing" you
