I have been receiving spam e-mail on a daily basis from what appears to be my own e-mail account (obviously it is being spoofed or whatever you call it).

I dont want to put my own e-mail address as a junk mail address.

Is there anything that can be done?

I'm running Windows XP with Office Outlook 2007.

Thank you!

Here are the message headers with my e-mail addy blocked out:

I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found here. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

I appreciate the quick response. This is actually happening on several of the computers in my office (this is a work computer). Personally, I dont think very highly of our IT staff so I came here. And before anyone jumps on me for not trusting them, we are a small company and I've actually had to help them figure several things out in the past. I haven't been on here in a year or so, but I've used this site for several years. I had to re-register as I couldn't figure out what my login/password was.

I'll go through the steps but I think it could be something in the e-mail server rather than something on my computer. [bleep], I dont know!

I'll keep the thread posted.

If it is a mail server issue then unfortunately it will be the IT person's responsibility to resolve it.
