I opened my email this morning and saw tow spam emails from myself! The email address of the sender of the spam was exactly the same as mine. How can that happen, anyone know?

I thought an email addy was, you know, special. Darn.:steamed:

I got a few like that, too.

many user programs have a "reply to" (or senders) field where you can put whatever you want.

legit uses include people sending a personal email from a work account, where they want the reply to be sent to their home account, or vice versa.

since the spammers already had your email address, they could easily put it in the "reply" data field. It got your attention, didn't it?
