    Hello,

    Have you received some e-mails that are both to and from yourself? This is an old spammer trick that is still seen today since people have a tenancy to whitelist e-mail from their own domain name. For example, if you work for Company.com, you might whitelist all e-mail from that domain. This is a bad thing to do since spammers can then send you e-mail From: your own address or any other fake e-mail address that ends in @company.com. The solutions for blocking this kind of spam or virus depend on your environment and if you own the domain you are using for your e-mail. If you have any questions for your particular situation please feel free to ask them and we'll be more than happy to answer them.
