    I have been receiving emails that look like they are coming from me. They are using my email address. Sometimes it even looks like I am replying to something I know I did not ask, re:my address.

    Sounds like spam or a phishing attempt.

    What is the content of the emails?

    Have you checked the full email headers?

    The headers will tell you where the emails are originating from.

    They look like something that would be considered spam. The subject on the one tonight was something about growth pills. I have not opened any of them for fear that they will have a virus. No, I haven't checkd the full email headers. Not really sure how to do that.
