my e mail address used as spam?

  applecroc 00:07 25 Jun 05

I have received a mail from someone claiming they think my e mail address is being used as spam. This person says they keep getting mail addressed from me. How can this be possible. I can't see how someone can be getting into my account as the sent folder isn't registering these.I have definitely not sent mail to this person. Can anyone explain this to me . Thanks.

would ask; do you know this person , or is this in itself a spam mail?

have they sent you or told you the exact address that is being apparently used?

Never heard of this person or their mail address before but the message came to my e mail claiming they had a message from me.? which they hadn't.

dont suppose you have mailwasher there to check the route of it and see if it has more than one destination? in other words a spam mail for you? and presume you have not responded to it:)

probably just a spam mail sent to you to entice you to open it to see if your account is valid!
delete it and ignore it!

It is most likely that someone with your e mail address is their address book has been infected by one of the mass mailing worms.

This then sends e mails preporting to be from you to all and sundry. The first yopu know is when you suddenly get hit with lots of bounced e amils or someone contacts you saying you have been sending them e mail.

I suffered this when a work colleague got MyDoom, I used Mailwasher to screen the mail.
