I use Outlook 2000 and am being inundated with spam. Most of which says it is "from" my own email address!!! Any idea how I can make it stop. Please!!

This type of spam usually stops after a week or so it is happening because someone is using your email address to send spam and the emails you are receiving are the undelivered emails being bounced back to your address as undelivered

But, ultimately, you cannot stop spam.

The only way around it is to change your e-mail address and then use that address sparingly - that is, don't use it to sign up for every e-newsletter on the planet or to sign in at 'dodgy' websites.
