Yup, I just got a spam e-mail from my own e-mail address. I didn't even think that was possible. So now I've blocked myself. :shrug:

It didn't really come from you, it's a practice called "spoofing". Don't block yourself, because that could mean that you may not get a lot of stuff sent to groups, etc.

Happened to me the first time about 4-5 years ago. I would say 3-4x per week I get spam from something resembling, but not exactly, my own email address. Wait until you get spoofed from someone you know. Very eerie feeling. "Why is my cousin sending me something about erectile dysfunction?"
