People who email me are getting 554 delivery error but I received the email

My email was hacked yesterday. Now when people email my they get the email 

"Sorry, we were unable to deliver your message to the following address" from MAILER-DAEMON. 

All emails that are being sent are getting to me and I can send emails without a problem but I dont want people thinking that I am not getting their emails because of this reply. 

I have looked up every fix for this and nothing seems to be working. I use this email for everything and need it fixed ASAP

My guess it that someone added auto forwarding but the address was closed. Check as follows.

 

Hover over the gear icon in Yahoo Mail and then click "settings" or "more settings".
Click "accounts" or "mailboxes" in left column.
Click on the primary address.
Check "forward" and enter address to forward email.
This option is currently not available in New mail. You must go back to Classic mail to set it up. Classic Mail is not available for partner accounts (AT&T, PacBell, SBC, Frontier, Verizon, Rogers, BT, Sky).
Only new mail can be auto forwarded.
 
Feel free to reply if my question or answer is not clear. Include @Barkley_Hound in the post.
I do not work for Yahoo and my postings are just my opinion based on experience.
