Sounds like you may be spam mailing others too. Never had it from myself though. Block yourself and see what happens, send some emails to another email acount and see if you receive them there.

There's plenty of tools that let you send mail with whatever sender address you choose, so faking an address really isn't that difficult. In fact you wouldn't even believe how easy it is.

Mind you, it's considered a form of identity theft and is therefore VERY illegal, so I won't explain it. Anyone who knows how to make a good query can Google it anyway.

Virus mail bot thing. Change your password and run av and rootkit detectors.
