email apparently from self

I recently received an email offering me Viagra. Nothing new in that, but this appeared to come from myself. How can other people send such emails?

Spam is often sent with the recipient's address in the "From:" field. This prevents you from bouncing it.

You can send emails with any address you want in the From field, just by changing it in the email program settings.
