I'm now a spam originator ... Apparently

So apparently there is now a spam bot(net) out there (at,, among others) that has harvested my work email as a sender address.
This means that I'm getting about 2 or 3 bounce messages per hour telling me that "the addresses was unreachable" and that "our bulk email filter has rejected you email" etc. Lucky for me I seem to be mostly selling watches.

But I'm pretty frustrated because there doesn't seem to be a solution and if this goes on for much longer my address (and/or company domain) is going to make it onto some official spam black lists... which will prevent me from getting (real) emails to any one.

Does any one have any ideas? I personally think I'm just screwed. I just wish I knew where they're harvested my address from. I don't even get that much spam normally, I'm pretty defensive about where I give it out.
