Hijacked email address?

  Bargee 14:48 16 Jun 2008


My Mailwasher Pro picked up an email for the usual chemical enhancement product toady on my personal email account. Since this was only the second example of spam I've ever received on this address in the last 3 years, I automatically added the sender to my blacklist.

I was extremely surprised to find the blacklist entry for this spam email sender was my own email address!

I've never come across this before & I'm wondering if my email has been hijacked in some way, perhaps my address book, or could this be something new. I'm running a spyware scan at the moment which I'll follow up with an AV scan. If I find anything, I'll post.

What do you think?
