Someone's using my email address!

I keep getting spam emails sent to me from my own email address - how can this happen and what can/should I do about it please?

i don't think you can do anything to stop it,you just have to delete them.there's been many threads on the subject,but,i don't think an answer :o(

Get yourself a new email address and delete that one.

I too am on the receiving end of this problem and it would seem that, apart from deleting them - as smackheadz said - the only thing you can do is change your email address.

Thanks for the suggestions. There are clearly too many warped minds out there with nothing better to do with their lives!

you will probably find that the 'alias' is your e-mail address and the senders true address is totally different.
