Hi people,  5 May14

re            Email bug infection - any advice

This is the 1st time I have had this problem

I'm using Thunderbird and my email address which I use for the Ubuntu 
lists is currently badly infected end of last week somehow.  About 60 
emails (as far as I can see) have been sent out from my email address 
came back as failed - firstly only with a Hello and then targeted with 
photo attachments of puppies etc - not sure if it also went out to the 
Ubuntu lists.  Most of the messages which I saw, came back as delivery 
failed - I wonder how many went out successfully.  I have the impression 
that some might have gone out successfully.

How can I take back my email address? Or get it cleaned up? Should I 
send out a warning to everyone who had been targeted in the first case?
Any advice?

Below is a copy:
