I keep getting loads of these error messages but I'm not sending any emails. In fact the sender in the below screenshot is not my email nor is the recipient anyone I know. What do you think is causing this and what can I do?

It looks like your email account has been hacked to send out spam. It could be malware on your computer, but possibly it is just that someone has gained access to your account without compromising your computer. Check your sent folders in both your local email client and your online webmail for any additional activity. The Norton alerts are actually just Norton displaying messages coming from the email service provider, so they do not necessarily indicate that Norton is detecting anything malicious on your computer.
