incoming email activity suddenly reduced

  tmr 10:23 11 Oct 2010

I normall receive 20 to 30 spam or junk emails a day which are filtered by my antispam filter and 2 or 3 emails from known trade sources.
this week my incoming emails have been almost zero with no spam or junk being received at all.
I have had several emails sent to me by friends to check that it is working and these were received OK.
I am quite happy that the spams have stopped but is there a logical explanation?
It it possible that my email account is being intercepted or taken over by a third party?
