Emails apparently coming from myself

I am using Thunderbird for my email with XP SP2 and occasionally receive an email with my email address as the sender. Does this mean my machine is being used to forward spam?
I use a Netgear Router with it's built in firewall enabled plus Comodo firewall on the PC. My virus protection is with Escan plus I have scanned my system with PrivX CSI, Spybot and Lavasoft Adaware. All are updated.

Not unusual. I occasionally get some on my still active e-mail address - easy to spot and immediately delete.

Many thanks Stuartli and Marg7, guess I just needed a bit of reassurance on this.
