Have you tried running adaware or spybot to see if you have any spyware running on your pc?

I always run adaware and remove any, none today when i checked.

How did it get through Mailwasher? Don't you look at the messages as they come in?

BTW not too clever posting the full address here either as it can be picked up by Spam Harvesting programs (Spam Bots). One way of avoiding spam is NOT to splash your e-mail address about everywhere!!!

But my own e-mail address is on my friends list, as i do sent myself CCs of e-mails i send out, among other things.

I do check, which was why i caught this e-mail.

The fact its "from" my own address is the problem.

Maybe its been picked up from the address book of another pc? Cant you set up a message rule to say delete any emails sent from you to you?

Just curious though, if you bounce the email in mailwasher does it bounce back to you?

Yes, its bounced back to me.
