Personal email is sending me spam!

Help!

I just noticed in my Junk mail folder that I have some objectionable Spam emails that have apparently been sent to one of my personal Gmail accounts from the same Gmail address! How did this happen and how can I correct it?

Hi. Someone may have hacked into your Gmail account. I encourage you to check out the link below as this also talks about hacked Gmail accounts.

Unfortunately, gmail doesn't have the option to block specific addresses yet, but you can create a filter to forward these type of messages directly to your trash....you can check this link http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answ ... nswer=8151 .....an alternative is to report it to gmail support, by clicking on the message, and clicking on the "report as spam" button on top of the message.

Yeah
I reported it to Gmail-it's called a "spoofing email"I think they pick up yr email from elesewhee in the internet-doesn't mean they have actually hacked in.

Yes, the sender might have used your address on the "from:" or "reply-to:" field.

You'd be able to find more information on spoofing on this page: Someone is sending from my address
