I have just started receiving Emails as if sent by myself to myself, i.e. the sender is using my own Email address. I know I could block this address, but sometimes when sending Emails out I send a blind copy to myself, thus I can't block my own Email address. Any idea how I overcome this problem. I did open one Email, and they are for sexual aides. I now blocked them all with my own email address, but I can't now send Emails to myself. I use windows live, and windows XP
It’s very likely to be nothing YOU'VE done that has caused the problem. It can happen even when you yourself take great care and it’s probably the result of someone you’ve written to who has an unprotected computer/doesn’t update/is careless about what emails they open. Thus his/her address book list (which includes your address) has been “got at” by a nasty and someone else (unknown to either of you) is now sending emails that supposedly have come from you. You can’t do anything about it, unfortunately.
